Round-up: QPR striker wanted, Millwall defender departs and Watford join race for Premier League man

Latest QPR, Millwall and Watford news and rumours on Tuesday morning.

QPR drew 0-0 away at Cardiff City yesterday. The R’s have picked up four points from two games under new boss Neil Critchley.

Millwall and Watford played each other on Boxing Day with the Lions coming out on top 2-0 winners. Here is a look at some of the latest news regarding the Championship trio...


QPR reportedly expressed an interest in signing striker Matej Vydra before his move to Viktoria Plzen. Football Insider claim the London club wanted him on a free transfer along with fellow second tier outfit Middlesbrough.

Former R’s manager Michael Beale is apparently keen to reunite with attacker Lyndon Dykes at Ibrox. Reporter Dean Jones has told GiveMeSport: “I’ve checked it out and Dykes is definitely someone that Rangers are keen on. The slight problem is that QPR absolutely do not want to lose him.”


Millwall defender Besart Topalloj has linked up with National League side Bromley on loan. The 21-year-old, who had a spell with Dagenham and Redbridge earlier this term, helped his new temporary club win 1-0 away at Southend United yesterday.

Alex Mitchell has been a hit with St Johnstone since joining the Scottish club on loan over the summer. He has had this to say about his situation at The Den, as per The Courier: “I’m contracted (to Millwall) next season as well. We’ll see what happens with Millwall. I’m concentrating hardest on playing here at St Johnstone so haven’t really thought about it at all. I do love playing here and I also love Millwall. I feel I’m in a really good position right now.”


Watford are said to be interested in Leeds United right-back Cody Drameh. The Hornets have ‘asked’ about landing the Premier League defender along with Burnley, as detailed in a report by The Athletic. He spent time with Cardiff City in the last campaign.

Slaven Bilic was frustrated after their loss to Millwall and told the club website: “I’m very disappointed. It’s hard to explain this performance from us because everything was good after Huddersfield, a great week of training and everything a coach can ask for. We prepared for Millwall and their strength, long balls and second balls but we were poor from the start. We didn’t have the ball and our passing was poor.”
