How QPR and Millwall market values compare with West Brom and Championship rivals amid takeover news

QPR boosted their squad market value over the January transfer window with a handful of new additions.

Big news in the Championship this week came as Florida-based entrepreneur Shilen Patel and his father completed a takeover deal at promotion-chasing West Brom. The duo have forked out a reported £60 million to acquire Guochuan Lai's 87.8 per cent majority with the deal approved by the EFL in February.

Patel, who has owned a minority shareholding in Serie A outfit Bologna since 2014, becomes the Baggies chairman. He said: "I am delighted and humbled to become the new custodian of West Bromwich Albion Football Club. Today marks the beginning of an exciting project for the club to regain its standing as a consistent Premier League presence."

As has been seen across the EFL this year, at clubs such as League One side Reading, an owner can make a world of difference with investment key for footballing success.
