QPR are looking to complete loan deals away from the club for two young players, with Aramide Oteh closing in on a temporary move to Bradford City and Osman Kakay also set to depart temporarily, West London Sport have reported.
Oteh is down the pecking order in terms of attacking options at Rangers, having made just 11 appearances for the club in all competitions for the club, scoring twice, since making his first-team debut in 2017.
The soon to be 21-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan with Walsall as they were relegated from League One, and it now looks as though Oteh could be set for a temporary move to another side who suffered that fate last year in the form of Bradford.
Kakay meanwhile is also expected to leave Rangers on loan before the window closes later on Monday, with clubs in both England and Scotland having apparently been made aware of his availability on a temporary basis.
The 22-year-old right-back failed to feature at all for QPR last season, and has previously spent time out on loan with both Livingston and Chesterfield earlier in his career.
Both players have two years remaining on their current contracts with QPR.
I think this is probably the best for everyone involved.
Looking at the options currently available to QPR, it is hard to make a case for either Oteh or Kakay enjoying much regular football for Rangers this season.
You feel therefore that it suits both players to move elsewhere temporarily, in order to experience more regular football, which is arguably the most important thing for them at this stage in their careers.
While Kakay’s destination remains to be seen, I do think there is a slight concern about the fact that Oteh is having to drop down to League Two level after spending time in League One last season, which doesn’t feel all that promising with regards to his progression in his career.
