QPR ‘very close’ to finalising De Wijs signing

Mark Warburton has confirmed that QPR are on the verge of finalising a deal to sign Jordy de Wijs from Hull City.

The Dutch defender, who recently turned 26, is set to join on loan for the rest of the season with a view to a permanent move.

Rangers manager Warburton said: “It’s close. There are some bits and pieces to be done, but it’s certainly getting very close and hopefully there will be one or two more after that as well.

“It’s going to be a very busy time for many clubs. Hopefully we can get one or two across the line.”

De Wijs’ arrival would pave the way for Conor Masterson to leave QPR on loan.

Rangers are hoping to also complete a deal to sign winger Alfie Doughty from Charlton this week.

They have indicated that they would be willing to loan Doughty, 21, back to the Addicks for the rest of the season.
