Championship outlet Queens Park Rangers have seen their bid for Charlton Athletic’s talented midfielder Jordan Cousins rejected, according to HITC Sport.
The 22-year-old came through the academy at Charlton and has made 125 senior appearances for the Addicks, scoring 7 goals. His importance to this Charlton side is shown by the fact that he has started nearly every league game for the last 3 years.
QPR boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is keen to get some new signings in, and the Dutchman has already stoked interest in multiple players, and has seen his initial bid for Cousins rejected.
With several different Championship clubs interested in the 22 year old, Hasselbaink will have to be quick if he wants to secure a replacement for Matt Phillips who moved to Premier League side West Brom earlier in the week for a fee in the region of £5.5 million.
For now however, Cousins remains a Charlton player, and Russell Slade will be hopeful that the Englishman stays and helps Charlton return to the Championship.
QPR and Charlton fans…What do you make of the news? Would Cousins be a good signing for QPR? How important is he to Russell Slade’s side next season?? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
