Photo: Watford's Fernando Forestieri in the stands watching QPR this weekend

Despite links to Leeds, Fernando Forestieri was present watching QPR this weekend instead.

Watford playing on Sunday allowed Fernando Forestieri the chance to go and watch Championship football on Saturday.

And despite ongoing speculation linking him with a move to Leeds United, he instead visited QPR's Loftus Road.

He posted a photo on his Twitter page, explaining he had gone to watch pal Alejandro Faurlin in action, who has recently returned from his latest serious knee injury.

The Mirror has reported that Leeds have struck a deal with Watford to sign Forestieri, subject to personal terms.

The Yorkshire Evening Post has however subsequently reported that the 25-year-old is reluctant to move to Leeds United, reporting: "Forestieri is rumoured to be looking for a club in the south of England."

QPR would certainly fit that bill, while the YEP report states Reading have made an approach for his services.

Forestieri was named on the bench for Watford's clash with Southampton a day later, and later tweeted expressing his thanks to Hornets fans for their continued support.

He will perhaps be hoping friend Faurlin can put in a good word for him at QPR, but whether the west London side have the money available to invest would depend on what happens with their own star striker Charlie Austin.
