QPR will be hoping they can finish this year’s campaign strongly after some strong performances since the turn of the New Year.
The Hoops are currently sat 12th in the Championship table, and will be eager to put together a positive run of form from now until the end of the 2020/21 season.
Mark Warburton’s side have shown much-needed improvement this term, and 12 points adrift of the play-off positions with nine matches remaining in this year’s league campaign.
A number of players have caught the eye this season for the Hoops, which has seen other members of the QPR squad struggle for a consistent run in the team.
It could be an interesting summer transfer window ahead, as they prepare for the 2021/22 season, where the club’s supporters are likely to fancy their team’s chances of challenging for a top-six finish in the second-tier.
We take a look at TWO players that QPR should look to loan out for the 2021/22 season.
Find out who they are, below….
Thomas signed for QPR back in 2020 from Leicester City, but has found regular game time hard to come by with QPR in this year’s campaign.
The Welshman has been restricted to just ten appearances in all competitions, and he’s also made just one league start this term. He’s been kept out of the starting XI by the likes of Macauley Bonne and Ilias Chair, and it seems as though it’ll be a tough ask to replace them in the team anytime soon as they head towards the new season.
The 24-year-old would be no stranger to a loan spell, as he’s previously been on the books with both Scunthorpe United and Dutch side ADO Den Haag earlier in his time with Leicester City.
Regular game time seems as though it’s going to be hard to find for Thomas, and a loan spell away from the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium could be the ideal solution for all parties involved as he looks to find regular minutes in senior football.

Kelman arrived at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium back in 2020 after impressing whilst with Southend United as a youngster.
He has made eight league appearances in total for QPR this season, but not one of those have been a start, which will be slightly frustrating for the 19-year-old.
He’s behind the likes of Charlie Austin and Lyndon Dykes in the pecking order though, so it’s understandable as to why he hasn’t featured as much, as they have been in good form in front of goal recently.
Kelman has shown his quality in the lower leagues of English football, and will be eager to make a name for himself again, and a loan move could be the ideal opportunity for him to do so ahead of the 2021/22 season.
