Warnock to put QPR star on loan
TEENAGE striker Antonio German will be allowed to leave QPR on loan – as long as a League One side comes in for him.
Rangers manager Neil Warnock is keen to give the 18-year-old from Harlesden some first-team experience now that Rob Hulse is close to full fitness and Leon Clarke recovered from an ankle injury.
At least one League Two club – thought to be Wycombe Wanderers – have expressed an interest in borrowing German, but Warnock would prefer the promising youngster to play at a higher level.
“I’m going to try and loan Antonio out, but I want to get him as high as I can,” said the Rs boss. “I’ve got one or two clubs definitely want him, they’ve made firm enquiries, but I want to get him higher.
“Until now I couldn’t let him go because everyone’s not been fit, but now Clarke’s fully fit and Tommy Smith and Rob Hulse are here, we’re going to have more choice.
“So I think now would be a good time for Antonio to go out and play five or six games. It’s important that it’s a good level and also the right sort of club.
“Josh Parker’s playing at Northampton at the moment and that’s good for us, because he’s a bright prospect. So if we can get Antonio on loan and maybe one other, we’ll do it.”

German, who made his QPR debut at Southampton in March 2009, spent time on loan at Aldershot Town last season but turned down a temporary move to Torquay soon after Warnock’s arrival at Loftus Road.
The teenager has made three substitute appearances for the Rs’ first team this season, scoring their goal in the 3-1 Carling Cup defeat by Port Vale.
