QPR winger attracting transfer interest from EFL duo

Published

on

Blackpool and Portsmouth are both interested in signing QPR attacker George Thomas, a report from Football Insider has claimed.

Thomas joined QPR on a free transfer back in the summer of 2020, but has so far struggled to make an impact for Mark Warburton’s side.

The 24-year-old has started just eight games for the club across all competitions, and is yet to score for in 27 appearances in total, providing just one assist in that time.

Which club did QPR sign these 28 midfielders from?

As a result, it now seems as though Thomas could be in line for a move elsewhere, with the transfer window once again open.

According to this latest update, QPR’s Championship rivals Blackpool, and League One play-off hopefuls Portsmouth, have both enquired about a loan move for Thomas for the second half of this season.

It is thought that QPR themselves could be open to allowing the winger to leave the club on a temporary basis this month, given the 24-year-old’s lack of game time in recent months.

QPR are currently fifth in the Championship table, eight points ahead of 12-placed Blackpool as things stand.

The Verdict

It does seem as though a loan move away from QPR this month could be good for Thomas.

Considering his lack of game time since the start of the season, it could be good for the winger to get the regular game time he no doubt wants to enjoy at this stage of his career.

Should such a move happen, then a move to Portsmouth could be more appealing from a QPR perspective, since it is less likely to have an impact on them, than sending him to a second-tier rival such as Blackpool could.

It will be interesting therefore, to keep an eye on this situation in the coming weeks, to see if QPR do allow Thomas to leave, and exactly where they are happy for him to go.
