QPR set for talks with Puncheon

QPR manager Neil Warnock is set to discuss the future of on-loan Southampton winger Jason Puncheon.

The 25-year-old has barely featured since his deadline-day arrival at Loftus Road, making only two substitute appearances for the R’s.

He was signed on loan with a view to a permanent move when the transfer window reopens, but there are major doubts over whether that deal will go through now Puncheon is so far down the pecking order.

“I’ll be speaking to Jason over the Christmas period,” said Warnock.

“It’s been difficult for him. He’s been unlucky because when he came we hadn’t signed Shaun Wright-Phillips and Jamie Mackie was injured, so all of a sudden there’s two more in front of him and Tommy Smith as well.”
