Burnley have reportedly entered the race to sign Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna.
QPR have long been keen on the Scotland international and had offers for him rejected during the summer transfer window.
They have been tipped to try again this month to land McKenna, who handed in a transfer request last August in an attempt to force a move.
But the Daily Mail say he could get the chance to move to the Premier League, with Burnley apparently considering snapping him up.
The Mail say Championship side Bristol City, Blackburn and Huddersfield but could struggle to meet the asking price.
QPR have certainly struggled to do so – they spent much of the summer in negotiations with Aberdeen, who dug in and refused to sell.
It is believed that Aberdeen are looking for around £6m for the 23-year-old, who was previously linked with Aston Villa and Stoke.
Rangers have been hampered by Financial Fair Play rules and are unlikely to be able to spend significantly during this month’s window.
And the prospect of McKenna getting a chance to play in the top flight makes it seem all the more unlikely that he will be heading to Loftus Road in the coming weeks.
