Queens Park Rangers are set to recall Aramide Oteh from his season-long loan-spell at Bradford City, according to West London Sport.
Oteh, 21, has scored four goals in 18 League One appearances for Bradford this season, but looks set to finish the season in West London.
It comes after the R’s this week lost top-scorer Nahki Wells – the Burnley man was recalled from his loan-spell in West London, and has today joined Bristol City, who head to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium tomorrow afternoon.
Jan Mlakar is also expected to depart from his QPR loan-spell today – the Brighton & Hove Albion forward has endured a tough stint in West London, having not started a game all season and not scoring once.
It looks like he’s heading to Italy to finish the season with Serie B outfit Trapani Calcio.
Oteh is a player who’s been exciting both Bradford and QPR fans this season. He made a handful of appearances for QPR last season and even got himself a Championship goal, but game-time was always going to be difficult this time round.

He’s a young player though and one that QPR fans have high hopes for – Oteh is actually the club’s only striker now, with Jordan Hugill and Mlakar both on-loan, leaving Oteh as the only ‘permanent’ attacking option for Warburton.
This transfer window has been tough for QPR, but they come out of it relatively unscathed. They look set to keep hold of Ebere Eze and Bright Osayi-Samuel until the summer, but Wells’ goals will need replacing.
Whether Warburton will make any signings today, let alone a striker, is a doubt. Oteh’s return will bolster his options, but expect Hugill to lead the line for the remainder of the season.
