Round-up: QPR player departs, Millwall want to keep 2019 signing and ex-Watford man joins new club

QPR player departs, Millwall want to keep 2019 signing & ex-Watford man joins new club.

QPR, Millwall and Watford have a break from the action as the World Cup takes centre stage. The trio are all eyeing promotion from the Championship when they return.

The January transfer window gives them an opportunity to bolster their squads. Here is a look at some of the latest news regarding the trio...


QPR goalkeeper Joe Walsh has completed a loan move to National League side Dorking Wanderers. The 20-year-old has linked up with the non-league outfit to get some more experience under his belt on a deal until January.

R’s striker Lyndon Dykes started for Scotland against Turkey earlier this week. He ended up being substituted in the second-half as his side lost 2-1.


Millwall hope to keep goalkeeper Bart Bialkowski this winter, despite him losing his place at number one to George Long. Boss Gary Rowett has told the South London Press: “I don’t want him to go anywhere because he is a brilliant player. I’m sure there is going to be some point when he is going to need to come back into the team and do what he has done for so long.”

Rowett is looking forward to seeing how England get on at the World Cup and has told the Southwark News: “I’ll watch them, I’ll always watch England, especially in the big tournaments,” he clarified. Again, it’ll just be interesting to fit it around training and matches and whatever happens. We’ll try and do our best. I’m sure the players will want to watch one or two of the games, although I think some players nowadays aren’t as bothered about watching the football.”


Former Watford boss Rob Edwards has been appointed as the new manager of Luton Town. The ex-Forest Green Rovers man lasted just 11 games in charge at Vicarage Road.

Defender William Troost-Ekong played for Nigeria last night against Portugal and lasted the full 90 minutes. However, his side ended up losing 4-0.
