Sky Bet Championship side Queen’s Park Rangers, have left Anglo Nigerian midfielder Eberechi Eze out of their pre season squad.
The London side are due to play AFC Wimbledon on Saturday for a pre season friendly match and their go-to man Eze has been removed from the QPR’s squad for the game.
His omission from the squad further increases the speculation that Ebere would not be a Ranger come next season bringing his time at Loftus Road to an end.
Premier League household names West Ham United, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa are heavily linked with the attacking midfielder, English Premier League returnees Leeds United are also said to be interested in him.
Players who are touted to leave Loftus Road this coming season were spoken to by QPR’s head coach Mark Warburton, he told Eze and co to be focused on playing football for now and not be distracted by the talks surrounding their future.
Ryan Manning and Bright Osayi-Samuel who also carried QPR alongside Ebere last season are in the final year of their contracts.
“What they have to do is apply themselves really well. Their job is to focus on football,” Warburton told QPR’s website.
“All you can do as a professional player is concentrate on what they control.
“And they can control how they apply themselves, how they train and how they work.
“The periphery business, let the agents and the various people get on with it.
“The player, just work on your game and if you do that then I don’t think there’s much you can do.
“They’re QPR players. They’re getting paid by QPR. If they stay with QPR, all well and good.”
Eberechi Eze had a phenomenal season last term as he found the back of the net fourteen times and turned on eighth occasions racking up 46 appearance all through.
The former Arsenal youth teamer has four suitors and their chances of signing Eze has been rated over hundred percent. West Ham United has the highest score with 76, Crystal Palace have 70, Leeds United have 50 and Aston Villa have 63.
The percentage above doesn’t have a final say on what club he’s going to join, as they only represent the intensity that each club have input in the race to capture his signature.
It’s not just the club future of the youngster that’s not settled, his international future still hangs in the air because he’s not made a decision yet on which nation he would turn out for. He has England and Nigeria queuing for him.
