QPR open to out of favour international striker making January move



Championship play-off chasers QPR are thought to be open to letting striker Paul Smyth make a move away from Loftus Road this January.

The 21-year-old Northern Ireland striker has failed to make an impression this term, but after signing a new deal with the R’s, West London Sport are reporting that Smyth will be allowed to make a move away from the club in search of first team football.

Smyth was only signed in the summer after impressing for Linfield, but hasn’t featured for the London club since taking part in the game against promotion chasing Sheffield United back in the summer.

The young striker has reportedly attracted the interest of a host of clubs, and Smyth will no doubt be keen to find somewhere where he can indeed get regular football and hopefully bang some goals in as he looks to impress R’s manager McClaren ahead of next term.

QPR have been in impressive form this season under the former England manager and have been sniffing around the play-off places. However, a 1-0 loss to Sheffield United last weekend derailed that charge somewhat, and the club will be looking to get back on a good run as soon as possible.

The Verdict

Makes sense this one in all honesty, with Smyth not even getting in the squad in the main.

The young Irishman clearly has some talent given he’s been given a new deal, and a move to League One or Two might do him the world of good.
