QPR set to complete deal for midfielder Richards

QPR are set to finalise a deal to bring in Brighton midfielder Taylor Richards.

The Hammersmith-born 21-year-old was on Fulham’s books and then had a spell at Manchester City before joining Brighton in 2019.

He spent last season on loan at Birmingham, having spent the previous campaign on loan at Doncaster.

Talks have been taking place with Brighton, where Richards is under contract until 2024.

New boss Mick Beale is keen to bring in a midfielder, right-back and at least one striker before the Championship season gets under way.

Rangers are not currently looking to sign Chelsea midfielder Tino Anjorin, who has been linked with a potential move to W12.

They are trying to sign right-back Danny McNamara from Millwall.

McNamara, 23, has entered the final year of his contract.

A couple of potential loan options have been lined up as alternatives if a deal for McNamara cannot be agreed.
