QPR youngster Reece Grego-Cox is keen to go out on loan in order to gain more first-team experience.
Grego-Cox’s outing against Carlisle in the League Cup on Tuesday was his fifth appearance at senior level.
And with Rangers now out of the competition following their 2-1 defeat, a temporary move away from Loftus Road looks likely for the 18-year-old forward.
“A loan move is on the cards for me at the moment,” he said.
“I know Chris [Ramsey] is always watching me, so hopefully if I did go out I can impress then have a better chance of getting in here.”
The Hammersmith-born Grego-Cox, who featured four times in the top flight towards the end of last season after Ramsey was placed in charge, believes a spell in the lower divisions is a logical move at this stage of his career.
He said: “I want to be playing men’s football. I think I’d learn a lot more from playing that week in, week out rather than playing with the Under-21s and then having minutes here and there with the first team.
“Playing in the Premier League made me mature as a player, but I know I’ve still got a lot to work on. My hold-up play needs to be better and my movement too.
“So it would be beneficial for me to go on loan. I’m not sure whether it will be League One or League Two yet but I wouldn’t want to drop any lower as I have played in the Premier League.”
