West Bromwich Albion are reportedly close to signing the Queens Park Rangers defender.

Queens Park Rangers fans are reacting to reports the R’s right-back, Darnell Furlong, could join West Bromwich Albion.

According to the Express and Star, West Brom are closing in on a deal for Furlong, which will see QPR receive around £1.5 million.

And there appears to be some substance to the speculation, with the Independent subsequently claiming that Rangers are set to sign the Chelsea right-back, Dujon Sterling, on loan.

Furlong – whose father, Paul, played for QPR as well as West Brom’s local rivals, Birmingham City – has appeared on 73 occasions for the R’s, whose academy ranks he progressed through, and has two years left on his contract at Loftus Road.

Some of a QPR persuasion believe that their side are therefore entitled to more than the £1.5m fee suggested, although others are ready to take West Brom’s money and run.

This is what they’re saying on Twitter…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to the Express and Star, West Brom’s move for Furlong is unlikely to end their interest in the versatile Everton defender, Mason Holgate.
