Round-up: QPR defender departs, Millwall ace to return and Watford man attracting interest

Latest news regarding Championship trio QPR, Millwall and Watford on Monday.

QPR’s first game back after the World Cup break is against table toppers Burnley this Sunday. Millwall returned this past Saturday and lost 3-0 to Sunderland.

Watford take on Hull City this weekend. Here is a look at some of the latest news regarding the trio...


QPR full-back Arkell Jude-Boyce has joined Dagenham and Redbridge on loan. The youngster has been given the green light to sign for the National League side on a temporary basis to get some experience under his belt.

Aston Villa are ‘closely’ monitoring Tim Iroegbunam’s situation with the R’s, as per a report by Birmingham Live. The midfielder is on loan with the London club and has been getting plenty of game time.


Millwall are expected to bring Shaun Hutchinson back into the starting XI this weekend as they prepare to face Kolo Toure’s Wigan Athletic, as per London News Online. The centre-back was on the bench against Sunderland last time out.

The Lions don’t want to rely too much on key player Zian Flemming for goals. The attacking midfielder has been a hit since his summer switch from Fortuna Sittard and boss Gary Rowett has told the Southwark News: “Zi is human. He’s not going to score every week, he’s not going to win us games every week. That’s where other players, certainly in those forward areas, need to step up and add that little bit of brilliance to go and unlock a game, which the first half was.”


Watford are on the verge of signing CF Montreal midfielder Ismael Kone on a four-and-a-half year deal. That’s according to the Watford Observer, who suggest the move could be announced as soon as tomorrow. The 20-year-old has spent the past couple of weeks at the World Cup with Canada and played in all of their group games.

Crystal Palace are still said to be keen on Ismaila Sarr. Journalist Ed Aarons has told GiveMeSport: “We talked about Villa last time, and Palace are still interested in him. But his contract’s coming to an end, I think it ends in 2024. So, there could be a good deal for somebody coming up.”
