Report: QPR aiming to snatch Emyr Huws from Huddersfield after Sandro's exit

Queens Park Rangers are reportedly targeting Huddersfield's Wigan-owned midfielder Emyr Huws.

According to The Times, Queens Park Rangers are targeting a move for Huddersfield loanee Emyr Huws before tomorrow's transfer deadline.

QPR have snapped up goalkeeper Matt Ingram and striker Conor Washington from Wycombe Wanderers and Peterborough United respectively this month, but manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink may be keen on more Football League stars before the deadline.

BBC Sport suggested on Saturday that QPR have agreed a fee to sign Hasselbaink's former Burton Albion star Nasser El Khayati, with that deal expected to go through on Monday.

However, another deal being pursed by the R's is for Emyr Huws, as The Times report that QPR hope to sign him as Sandro's replacement.

Having allowed Sandro to join West Brom on loan until the end of the season, it's stated that QPR want to sign another central midfielder, and Huws is their top target.

The Welsh international, 22, is currently on a season-long loan deal at Huddersfield Town, having left Wigan Athletic for the Terriers over the summer.

A talented, left-footed central midfielder, Huws came up through the ranks with Manchester City after leaving Swansea City in 2009, and he has impressed this term with five goals and three assists for Huddersfield.

Any deal for QPR would involve Wigan cancelling that loan and moving him on to Loftus Road, which seems unlikely on the final day of the transfer window, but Hasselbaink may be hopeful of persuading them to make a deal.

Would Huws be a good signing for QPR?
