Ephraim believes that the Rangers star will either remain at Loftus Road or join Newcastle before the end of the summer transfer window.
@HoganEphraim where do you think Charlie will end up? I think southampton maybe if they're willing to stump up the cash— Whitey (@MatwhiteQPR) August 15, 2015
Gut feeling is stay or Newcastle. That's just my guess https://t.co/HcTV1w9GeO— Hogan Ephraim (@HoganEphraim) August 15, 2015
