QPR are poised to complete the signing of teenage forward Paul Smyth from Linfield.

West London Sport reported earlier this week that the R’s had made an offer for Smyth and now report that a deal has been agreed in principle between the two clubs.

Smyth, who turns 20 next month, is a Northern Ireland Under-21 international.

Meanwhile, Get West London say Osterstund striker Saman Ghoddos is a QPR transfer target and suggest Rangers have offered £1.9m.

However, Osterstund chairman OFK chairman Daneil Kinberg has been quoted by Swedish media as saying: “It is a misconception that we have rejected any bid.”

Get West London have linked QPR with a host of players so far this summer, recently picking up on online rumours that Rangers are interested in striker Gohi Cyriac, who was on loan at Fulham last season.

Lausanne-Sport defender Benjamin Kololli has also been linked.

It was claimed that Rangers scouts attended the Swiss club’s pre-season friendly against Brentford in order to watch Kololli.

Get West London also say Rangers “are thought to have expressed an interest” in Paris St-Germain midfielder Christopher Nkunkuthe.

Get West London have previously said that Rangers are “thought to be interested” in Newcastle’s Sammy Ameobi, “rumoured to be interested in Dijon forward Mamadou Thiam and “rumoured to be interested in making an approach” for Lorient winger Denis Bouanga.

Get West London have also linked with R’s with 41-year-old keeper Shay Given, and linked Conor Washington with a possible move to Birmingham after fans’ website Vital Birmingham City published an article asking whether Washington might be the kind of forward who might succeed at St Andrews.
