Mark Warburton has said that he hopes Luke Amos will be fit for Queens Park Rangers’ return to pre-season training in July.
The former Tottenham midfielder suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury back in October this year against Bournemouth, ruling him out for the rest of the campaign.
Amos has suffered a similar injury earlier in his career but now looks to have his sights on a return to action ahead of the new season.
Of course with injuries of this type it’s important that the 24-year-old doesn’t rush his return to action, but QPR’s head coach appears optimistic that the midfielder is firmly on the right track.
Speaking to West London Sport, Warburton said: “He’s on course. With ACL injuries it’s literally about week-to-week progress.
“He’s been out on the grass and involved in some ball work, which is great to see.
“Luke has more work to do but he’s an outstanding young professional. I’ve never met anyone with more focus and desire than Luke Amos.
“We had body fat tests and his numbers were quite staggering – how hard he’s working through this injury to get back to the first team.
“I think he’s on-track. I hope in July we see him come back to us. He was having his best run for the club when he got injured.
“There’s no doubt he’s a very talented player and we look forward to having him back.”

This is fantastic news for Queens Park Rangers.
Luke Amos is a truly talented player but unfortunately his young career has been significantly hindered by serious injuries so far.
The focus for the 24-year-old has to be on not rushing his recovery, and instead ensuring that when he does return that he doesn’t suffer any form of relapse.
Next season will be massive for the midfielder and Mark Warburton will need him fit as a result.
