Former League One Striker Wanted By QPR And Three Other Clubs

Former Exeter City loanee Jay Stansfield is a transfer target for Championship side Queens Park Rangers as well as three other clubs, according to the Evening Standard.

Stansfield spent most of last season on loan at his boyhood club in St James Park and scored nine goals in 39 appearances in all competitions before returning to Premier League side Fulham this summer.

However, the Cottagers are willing to allow the 20-year-old to head back out on loan this season, with QPR said to be leading the race for his signature.

Standard Sport are also claiming that the London club are one of four Championship sides pursuing the youngster in the hopes of completing a deal before the transfer window shuts in little over two weeks.

In a contrasting report, journalist Darren Witcoop has revealed that Stansfield may be asked to stay at Craven Cottage as Luke Harris is heading out on loan to Exeter City instead.

Bolstering QPR’s attack

QPR have had a peculiar start to the season, getting thumped 4-0 at home against Watford in what was quite a worrying display before going to Cardiff City and taking all three points with a 2-1 win.

Gareth Ainsworth’s side are a little short up top currently. Sinclair Armstrong, Scotland international Lyndon Dykes and Charlie Kelman are the only names on the books right now.

Armstrong scored his first goal for the club at the weekend in Wales while Dykes penned a new deal back in June. Nevertheless, Ainsworth is still looking to bolster his striker department ahead of what could be a gruelling season in England’s second tier.

Writer’s View

Stansfield coped quite well with the trials and tribulations of League One, bagging nine times in 36 appearances in the third division.

Now, though, it’s time that the Exeter City academy star tries his hand in an even tougher league, although this depends on whether or not Fulham head coach Marco Silva will sanction a loan spell anymore given the loss of Luke Harris.
