Queens Park Rangers have reportedly joined the race for unwanted Tottenham Hotspur winger Alex Pritchard, with West London Sport suggesting that they hope to utilise their Spurs connections to seal a deal.

Pritchard looks certain to leave White Hart Lane permanently this summer after Mauricio Pochettino confirmed reports on Monday that the 23-year-old is not part of his plans at the club.

The attacking midfielder has just two appearances for the Spurs first team to his name and has not featured since last August when he made a solitary Premier League substitute appearance before being sent on an ill-fated loan to West Bromwich Albion.

However, Pritchard has starred during other temporary spells away from the club, most notably in the Championship for Brentford in 2014-15 when he scored 12 goals in 45 appearances, form which saw him win the Bees Player's Player of the Year award and be named in midfield in the Championship Team of the Year.

Now, Pochettino's desire to offload the young star has piqued the interest of numerous clubs, and West London Sport claim that QPR are one of the seriously interested parties.

Whilst Spurs are ideally looking to cash in with a permanent deal, the report claims that QPR are keen on a loan deal with a view to a permanent move in the future.

Ex-Tottenham stars Les Ferdinand and Andy Sinton, and former long-serving Spurs coach Chris Ramsey are currently all at Loftus Road in various roles, and they are hoping that their connections with White Hart Lane can see the club jump to the front of the queue.

Ferdinand is director of football, Sinton works as club ambassador, and former Rs manager Ramsey is now the club's technical director.
