Warburton says QPR are ready to make another signing

QPR manager Mark Warburton says the club are ready to make another signing if a good deal becomes available before Monday’s transfer deadline.

Rangers have strengthened the centre of their defence, midfield and attack with the loan signings of Jordy de Wijs, Stefan Johansen and Charlie Austin.

And Warburton is not ruling out at least one more new arrival during the final stages of the transfer window.

He told the club’s website: “If someone becomes available who we think is right for us and we think we can access – and it represents value for the club – then absolutely we will do that.

“January is notoriously difficult for representing value and we don’t want to be a club that is ‘reaching’ for players, if that makes sense. Players we target need to have something that we don’t currently possess and represent good value for the club.”

Warburton has confirmed that De Wijs will not be available for Monday’s game at Watford.

The centre-back has been nursing a calf problem since his arrival from Hull.

“Jordy won’t be ready for Monday,” Warburton explained.

“He’s working with the medical team and will be coming to us [the main training group] shortly.

“Other than that, we have got one or two niggles and we’ll see how the next couple of days shape up.”
