QPR boss hoping to keep star players

QPR manager Mark Warburton says he hopes to keep his best players and that any sales would be on the club’s terms.

It comes amid reports that Leeds United have joined the likes of West Ham in a battle to sign Rangers star Ebere Eze, who has been widely tipped to join a Premier League club this summer.

Warburton’s squad will return to training in three weeks’ time – and he hopes Eze and Bright Osayi-Samuel will still be at the club.

Warburton told West London Sport: “Whatever happens happens. But if any player leaves QPR – and this is the key point – they leave on QPR’s terms. That’s what people have to realise.

“Every player in the world has got a price, whoever they are. If that valuation is met then everyone should win.

“I hope very much that everyone returns in 20 days’ time. But if we lose one or two it’s on QPR’s terms, that’s for sure.”

QPR have accepted an offer from Belgian outfit Club Brugge for Osayi-Samuel but the winger returned to the side for their draw at West Brom and West London Sport say he is assessing his options.

Asked if he agreed Osayi-Samuel’s outing at The Hawthorns is likely to be his final appearance for the R’s, Warburton said: “No I don’t. He’s a QPR player.

“I think the world of him and how he’s adapted and worked and the quality he’s delivered.”
