QPR’s director of football Les Ferdinand says a number of clubs have enquired about Osman Kakay’s availability ahead of next Tuesday’s transfer deadline.

Swindon Town are among those sides, and while the League One outfit have their full quota of loan signings, which is five in the matchday squad, they are keen for further discussions with Ferdinand over a potential move.

As the Times revealed yesterday, manager Ian Holloway is keen to let the youngster go out on loan to get some much-needed game time.

Kakay, 19, has made three appearances for the Rs this season, most recently coming on as a late substitute in their 3-0 defeat at promotion chasing Brighton & Hove Albion last month.

Ferdinand told this publication: “There’s a couple of clubs interested in Osman at the minute.

“I need to speak with Swindon about it, as we know they’ve got their full quota of loan players, and this loan would essentially need to be about Osman getting more game time.

“They’ve shown an interest though, so we’ll see what happens there.”

Elsewhere, Ariel Borysiuk is closing in on a return to Lechia Gdańsk on loan.

The Times understands there will be the option to make that deal permanent at the end of the season, should both parties wish to do so.

Like Karl Henry, Borysiuk has been told he is surplus to requirements by Holloway and to find another club.
