QPR ‘prepared’ – but no approaches for players yet

Neil Critchley says there has so far been no sign of concrete interest in any QPR players.

Striker Lyndon Dykes has been touted for a move to Rangers since Mick Beale quit Loftus Road to take over at the Glasgow club.

There has also been speculation over the futures of the likes of Ilias Chair and Chris Willock.

Head coach Critchley says no approaches have been received but accepts that might well change later in the transfer window.

He said: “You always have to be prepared for potential interest in your players from other clubs.

“That hasn’t happened, thankfully, so far. But I’d be naive to think it couldn’t happen. So we have to be ready for every eventuality.

“If the squad was the same between now and the end of season I’d be comfortable with that.”

Critchley is keen to make further additions to the squad following the arrival of striker Jamal Lowe.

Bringing in Lowe for the rest of the season from Bournemouth means QPR now have five on-loan players – the maximum permitted in a matchday squad.

As it stands, therefore, signings on permanent deals are the only viable options for the club.

But Critchley insists he does not need to sell players in order to bring in new ones.

“We’re not at that stage, no,” he said.
