Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink isn't aware of West Brom contacting QPR for Matt Phillips.

Queens Park Rangers manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is quoted by the Birmingham Mail as saying that he isn't aware of contact from West Brom over signing winger Matt Phillips.

Phillips, 24, has notched five goals and five assists for QPR this term, continuing his fine performances from the end of the last season, where he impressed despite QPR's relegation.

Unsurprisingly though, Phillips' performances at Loftus Road have seemingly triggered interest in his signature, with a number of clubs looking to offer him a return to the Premier League.

West London Sport recently suggested that West Brom and Watford are both looking to land Phillips, whilst The Mirror also reported that Bournemouth are in the race to sign him too.

Today, QPR boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has spoken about Phillips' future, with the Birmingham Mail quoting him as saying that he knows every player his his price.

Hasselbaink would naturally prefer to keep Phillips at Loftus Road, and was specifically asked about West Brom's interest in the Scottish wide man.

The R's boss said he isn't aware of a move from West Brom to sign Phillips, meaning the Baggies may be looking elsewhere ahead of Monday's transfer deadline.

"As far as I know they (West Brom) have not been in for Matt," Hasselbaink said. "Matt is a very young exciting player who is catching the eye of a lot of clubs. Do I want to lose Matt? No. He is a pleasure to work with. I do believe I can make him better. I do believe there is a lot of mileage in him and he's one of those players who fits in with the plans of QPR. But business is business and everybody has his price," he added.
