Will Warburton strengthen in January? Bonne recall? The latest QPR transfer talking points



Queens Park Rangers will be looking to continue their impressive run of form in the Championship when they host Stoke City at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Sunday.

The Hoops managed to seal all three points in their showdown with Derby County earlier this week as Andre Gray netted a stunning last-gasp winner at Pride Park.

Currently third in the Championship standings, it will be intriguing to see whether QPR opt to bolster their squad in the upcoming window.

Hoops manager Mark Warburton may also be willing to let some of his fringe players leave in January.

Here, we have decided to take a look at the latest QPR transfer talking points…

Will Warburton strengthen his squad in January?

Considering that QPR have been extremely unfortunate when it comes to injuries in the left-back position this season, Warburton may decide to strengthen his options in this particular area.

Sam McCallum is set to be out of action until the New Year whilst Lee Wallace recently picked up another injury during the club’s clash with Derby.

Whilst Warburton has admitted that it will be difficult to sign players in the upcoming window, he could find it beneficial to look to the loan market for solace amid QPR’s current full-back crisis.

Could Macauley Bonne be recalled from Ipswich?

Warburton has recently revealed that QPR would be open to the possibility of recalling Macauley Bonne from his loan spell at Ipswich Town.

However, although Bonne has managed to score an impressive total of 11 goals in the third-tier this season, he may struggle to overtake the likes of Charlie Austin, Lyndon Dykes and Andre Gray in the pecking order at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium if he does return.

Who did QPR sign Charlie Austin from on an initial loan deal earlier this year?

Taking this into consideration, it could be argued that QPR should leave Bonne at Ipswich for the remainder of the campaign unless one of their forwards suffers a serious injury as he is currently guaranteed first-team football at Portman Road.

Will QPR allow Conor Masterson to extend his stay at Cambridge United?

Conor Masterson’s loan deal at Cambridge United is set to expire in January and the defender has openly admitted that he is keen to extend his stay at the Abbey Stadium.

During his time with the League One side, Masterson has featured on 19 occasions in all competitions as he has emerged as an important player for the club.

With Warburton currently able to call upon the services of Yoann Barbet, Rob Dickie and Jimmy Dunne, he may not need to turn to Masterson for inspiration next year and thus it would be a wise decision to negotiate fresh terms with Cambridge.
