QPR considering deal to sign Danish forward

QPR are giving a trial to Danish striker Marco Ramkilde.

Ramkilde, 21, is a free agent and is currently looking for a club.

He has played for his country at several youth levels and was previously at Danish Superliga club AaB.

Ramkilde played for QPR’s Under-23s in a game at Watford, where the visitors won 3-2. Aramide Oteh scored twice and the other Rangers goal came from Olamide Shodipo.

Meanwhile, QPR have triggered options to extend the contracts of Bright Osayi-Samuel and Ryan Manning by a year.

Director of football Les Ferdinand told the club website: “Exercising the option to extend the deals of Ryan and Bright is recognition of how well they have done for us over the past three years.

“They have both worked incredibly hard to become important members of Mark Warburton’s squad, and as such they are valuable assets to QPR.

“When you are signing young players the contracts need to be long enough to protect the club while not too long that they can potentially take away their incentive to progress.

“The extra one-year option which we have triggered gives us that ability to do both.

“We will be continuing discussions with Ryan and Bright as we look to extend their deals further.”

Osayi-Samuel, 22, and Manning, 23, joined the R’s in 2-17 from Blackpool and Galway United respectively.
