Warburton expects Leistner to stay at QPR

Mark Warburton says there is no prospect of Toni Leistner leaving QPR ahead of Monday’s German transfer deadline.

West London Sport revealed earlier this summer that Rangers were looking to sell Leistner after he had failed to impress new boss Warburton.

Reports in his native Germany have since suggested that he could return there.

But Rangers were unable to land Aberdeen centre-back Luke McKenna last month and their defensive frailties have led to Leistner being restored to the side.

Leistner played in Saturday’s 2-1 win at Sheffield Wednesday and Warburton does not expect him to go.

“No I don’t. He played 90 minutes for me and played well. I don’t expect any more players to leave,” Warburton said.

“Every player in the world has got a price on them. If any player leaves QPR they leave on QPR’s terms.

“If someone comes in with a ridiculous bid for one of our players, the powers-that-be above my pay grade will consider it.

“But right now we’ve got a strong squad of players and are building and improving. Tony was very good.”
