Osayi-Samuel and Leistner due to report for training at QPR
Bright Osayi-Samuel and Toni Leistner are currently due to report for training with the rest of the QPR squad next week.
Rangers plan to resume discussions with Osayi-Samuel about his future after the winger decided against a move to Club Brugge.
The Belgian outfit recently had a £4.7m bid accepted for him, having previously had an offer of £3m rejected.
Having asked for time to make a decision, Osayi-Samuel opted not to go through with the move.
QPR had called off contract talks on the understanding he was about to leave the club.
Those talks are now set to resume – although there has been no indication so far from the Osayi-Samuel camp that he will sign a new deal.
He is in the final year of his contract at Loftus Road, as is Ryan Manning.
Both players have been keeping their options open and have been linked with a host of clubs.
However, none have matched Club Brugge’s offer for Osayi-Samuel despite QPR and the player himself hoping an English side would come in for him.
And there have so far been no approaches for Manning despite reports he is wanted by West Ham.
However, Hammers boss David Moyes, who is keen on Rangers’ Ebere Eze, is aware of Manning’s potential availability.
Leistner’s future uncertain
Meanwhile, Leistner remains a QPR player after Cologne opted not to take up an option to sign him permanently.
His representatives have approached top-flight clubs in England and the defender’s native Germany to see if any are interested in signing him.
West London Sport revealed soon after Mark Warburton had taken over as Rangers manager that Leistner was out of favour under the new boss and that the club were looking to sell him along with Massimo Luongo, who subsequently joined Sheffield Wednesday.
QPR search for centre-back
Warburton is keen to sign at least one centre-back this summer.
QPR want Oxford United’s Rob Dickie but so do several other clubs, including Brentford.
Other possible signings have been lined up as an alternative to Dickie, including Northampton’s Charlie Goode.
Rangers have indicated they are willing to pay £500,000 for Goode.
Northampton want more and have suggested that other clubs are interested in him.
