QPR winger Paul Smyth is reportedly set to join Charlton Athletic on loan.
EFL clubs have until 5pm to complete any transfer dealings with other English teams and it appears the Addicks are set to add some more firepower to Lee Bowyer’s squad ahead of the deadline.
According to West London Sport, Smyth is set to complete his loan move to join Charlton today with a deal now agreed between the two clubs.
It is understood that the Addicks have been keen on the Northern Irishman for some time and that a loan move fell through in January 2019.
The 23-year-old spent last season on loan with Wycombe, scoring once and adding two assists as he helped them secure promotion to League One.
Smyth has featured four times for Mark Warburton’s side this term but is now set to go out on loan again this summer, with the R’s signing a number of new attacking options during the current window.
Among those is Macauley Bonne, who joined from Charlton in a £2 million deal last month.
Do these celebrities support QPR, Watford, Luton or Charlton Athletic?
This looks like a move that works for all parties involved.
Smyth has been used as a substitute by Warburton through the first few weeks of the season but given the attacking additions they’ve made in the transfer market, you imagine he was unlikely to see that many opportunities moving forward.
It appears Charlton have been keen on the winger for some time and have now got their man, adding some more firepower to Bowyer’s squad as he looks to bounce straight back up to the Championship.
