Irish youngster Ryan Manning is stuck in limbo because of an ongoing dispute between QPR and Galway United about how much money should be paid in compensation for the Ireland Under-19 international.

Manning officially joined Rangers on January 1, but has only been able to play in friendly matches against Millwall and Sampdoria as he has yet to receive his international clearance.

QPR’s international clearance form states that the compensation fee is £45,000. Galway claim it is £60,000.

An FAI spokesman told the Brent & Kilburn Times: “An International Transfer Certificate is usually dealt with by the Football Association of Ireland but it didn’t happen in this instance because of a dispute between QPR and Galway over some details.

“After 15 days the ITC passes over to the home association. The matter is now being dealt with by the English FA, QPR and Galway United.”
