Ian Holloway has provided his thoughts on the future of Queens Park Rangers attacker Eberechi Eze.
The young attacker has come on leaps and bounds this term under the stewardship of R’s boss Mark Warburton, with the 21-year-old having racked up an impressive nine goals and four assists so far this campaign.
Eze’s eye catching showings at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium have unsurprisingly caught the attentions of various clubs from the higher echelons of the English football pyramid, with a recent report by The Sun detailing how the youngster is of interest to Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur.
With the player still having just over two years to run on his current contract with the west London side, it is unclear as to whether he will be with the R’s for the remainder of that deal.
FLW Journalist Chris Thorpe recently sat down with Holloway to discuss the current speculation surrounding his former player and here is what the former R’s boss had to say on Eze’s future.
“Eze is one that sticks out like a sore thumb, I’ve always liked a flair player.
“There should be no rush to go anywhere from his point of view, there’s plenty of time for him and he makes me proud when he goes out on that field.
“I hope Eze gets played every minute of every week, he’s learning and he’s playing in the way that the fans love.
“However, the debts that the club has created over the last few years does put them at risk, so it will be interesting to see if he stays put or not.”
Ian Holloway was speaking at an event organised by The Sackrace, a website which features the latest news and football gossip on the managers at each of the major clubs.
