A look into what is going on in the Championship regarding QPR, Millwall and Watford

QPR return to action this weekend with a tricky home clash against Swansea City. Millwall face an away trip to Cardiff City.

Watford have Rotherham United at home. Here is a look at some of the latest news and rumours regarding the Championship trio...


QPR goalkeeper Seny Dieng is apparently attracting interest from the Premier League. Journalist Will Unwin has reported that Tottenham Hotspur, Brighton and Hove Albion and Brentford are keen (see below).

The Hoops U21’s clash against Charlton Athletic has been postponed due to a frozen pitch. A new date will be announced in due course.


Millwall have been credited with an interest in Brighton and Hove Albion striker Deniz Undav in a report by Football League World. However, there is strong competition for his signature with the likes of West Brom, Sunderland, Blackburn Rovers and Norwich City also in the frame.

Striker Tyler Burey could be sidelined until the end of next month. Boss Gary Rowett has told the Southwark News: “Tyler got a bang to his hip. There could be muscle damage there. I think he did it in the game, but he felt something there for a little while. We had it scanned and they were saying that it’s probably a four-to-six-week injury.”


Watford are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign striker Henrique Araujo from Benfica, as per The Telegraph. The 20-year-old is poised to join on loan until the end of the campaign.

The Hornets’ game against Blackpool last time out has proved to be Michael Appleton’s last in charge of the Seasiders. He has now been sacked as they battle against relegation.
