QPR boss tells Parker where to go

QPR midfielder Josh Parker will be sent out on loan again soon – this time to a club of manager Neil Warnock’s choosing.

The promising 19-year-old made three appearances for League Two strugglers Northampton Town before returning early from his loan spell last week.

Parker, who has already played six times for Rangers’ first team, also cut short a loan at AFC Wimbledon earlier this year and Warnock has promised to consider the youngster’s next destination carefully.

“There was another club Josh could have gone to where he would have played,” said the QPR boss. “I’m going to have to tell him, he’s got to go where I know he’s going to be playing – he can’t pick where he wants to go now.

“I think he enjoyed it at Northampton, but it was a mutual thing – they got one or two back, so they didn’t require him any more. But I think the young lads need more of that.

“I’m looking for him to go out again, especially now we’ve signed Kyle [Walker] until January. Mick Jones thinks Josh’s best position is right-back, but I feel he can do a good job at right wing as well.

“Young players benefit from both sides of the coin – sometimes it’s better for them to find out what it’s like in a struggling team and teams that are top of the league don’t need so many players.”

Warnock confirmed that he is also close to completing a loan arrangement for striker Antonio German to a League One side – but Rowan Vine is back at Loftus Road after Hull opted not to extend his loan at the KC Stadium.

Vine made five appearances for the Tigers after his fall from grace at Rangers enabled Hull to borrow him at the beginning of October.
