No approaches for QPR stars, says Warburton

QPR: Rob Dickie and Seny Dieng

Mark Warburton has insisted that QPR have received no approaches for any of their star players.

“There have been none. None whatsoever,” said the Rangers manager, who has become increasingly irritated by speculation over the futures of Rob Dickie and goalkeeper Seny Dieng.

Warburton recently dismissed reports linking Dieng with a £6m move and later mocked reports that Newcastle, Leeds and Wolves are chasing a pre-deadline deal to sign centre-back Dickie.

And on Friday evening Warburton again hit out at suggestions he could lose key players before the transfer window closes.

He said: “You’re seeing journalists saying Newcastle, Leeds, Wolves all going in for our players. Nonsense. Absolute nonsense.

“But they seem to get away with it week on week and stories then generate from their false stories in the first place.

“They have a responsibility to get some facts. The stories are just nonsensical and the fans read it and react to it.

“I get the game. I get the content requirement. But sometimes a bit of truth and fact would help the matter.

“Clubs put valuations on players that they think are appropriate – hence my frustration when you see journalists banding around numbers which are bizarre.”

Meanwhile, unwanted QPR defender Todd Kane is close to joining Coventry.

Rangers are looking to complete a deal to sign striker Andre Gray on loan from Watford.
