Brighton and Hove Albion striker Tomer Hemed is again being linked with a possible loan departure to Championship side Queens Park Rangers.

The speculation isn’t entirely new as it came up the other week but seemed largely based on the fact that it’s believed QPR manager Steve McClaren is looking to add an option or two up front at Loftus Road, and obviously Hemed is well down the pecking order at the Amex this year after our summer strengthening.

The Argus covered this earlier in the month and for some reason it appears others have started linking back to it in fresh pieces yesterday.

There is nothing new in the reports though, there’s just a subtle twist that although Brighton may have been interested in a permanent deal ahead of the deadline window closing, we’d now be content with a loan deal – which has always reportedly suited QPR better anyway owing to their finances.

I can only imagine it was a quiet day for the London press who look at QPR as the overall situation remains unchanged as far as I can tell, he might be a potential target for them but there doesn’t appear to have been a firm approach just yet.
