Hughes blocks all QPR loans

Mark Hughes will block loan bids for any his fringe players, as QPR's injury crisis continues to grow.

Given the amount of transfer turnover at Loftus Road over the past year, a number of squad members have found themselves on the sidelines and attracting interest from clubs looking for short-term deals.

The Daily Mail reports that Hogan Ephraim, Brian Murphy and Shaun Derry have been particularly sought-after.

But, with QPR enduring a series of injuries - especially in defence - Hughes has instructed technical director Mike Rigg to not consider any approaches for players named in his 25-man squad, including the aforementioned trio.

Defenders Ryan Nelsen, Clint Hill and Fabio are all concerns for Hughes with various knocks while striker Andy Johnson is ruled out for the season after injuring the cruciate ligaments in his knee.

Owner Tony Fernandes has reportedly given Hughes two months to save his job after Rangers, who sit rock bottom of the Premier League, earned just two points from their first seven games.
