Queens Park Rangers boss Mark Warburton has confirmed that plans are already underway in terms of identifying new signings for this summer, as he admitted the new rules because of Brexit makes things tougher.
Having flirted with relegation in the earlier part of the campaign, a very productive January transfer window was the catalyst for a real upturn in form.
Eight wins from their last 13 games has lifted the R’s into mid-table safety, and fans will be hoping that they can carry this momentum on for the remainder of the season and into the next campaign.
And, speaking to West London Sport, Warburton admitted that they are on the lookout for new additions, but he explained the difficulties they now face.
“We’re looking at various targets. We now have to make sure we add quality – add value to the squad. Recruitment for all clubs is of paramount performance.
“It’s a change to the type of players you can access and who can come to work in the UK with Brexit. So on the recruitment side, the markets that can be tapped into have significantly changed and the value of talented young British players is now very high.”
Did these 20 things happen to QPR in 2020?
This is going to be a very important summer for Warburton and QPR because he has a decent squad now but they still need a few more quality signings to help them improve.
As he points out, that’s more difficult than it was before, but it’s the same for everybody in the league, so QPR have to find a way to get ahead of their rivals.
The fact their season is effectively over now means that planning can start already, which has to be a positive in terms of allowing them to hit the ground running from next season.
