A week to go in the transfer market and many Championship clubs are jostling for position, with several players interesting more than one club.

Some clubs are desperately trying to add before next week’s 11pm deadline, others to avoid losing their star names before January 31. However, some of that could well be out of their control.

QPR, who face Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup tonight, arrive at Ewood Park on Tuesday night having been Leeds United 1-0 last weekend.

On the scoresheet that afternoon was Nahki Wells, netting goal number 14 of what has been a productive loan spell at Loftus Road, which also the opener in a 4-2 win over Rovers in October.

The 29-year-old is in to a second consecutive loan spell with the Rs, having scored nine times last season, but his future, with a week of the window left to go, appears up in the air.

Wells is on loan from Rovers’ East Lancashire rivals Burnley where he has made just 10 substitute appearances since a £5 million move from Huddersfield in August 2017.

His contract is due to expire in the summer but there is a one-year option in favour of the Clarets.

However, given his form this season, there is interest from across the Championship in the Bermuda-born forward.

And Burnley could look to take advantage of that before the window closes, with a reported price-tag of around £6m being put on his head.

That would require Sean Dyche to recall Wells from his loan spell, to allow him to move on a permanent basis. With Wells having not featured for Burnley this season, he could still make a move in this window.  

QPR will understandably be keen to keep hold of Wells, with only league leaders West Bromwich Albion having scored more goals this season, while a win at Ewood on Tuesday would see them overtake Rovers in the table. 

But with Nottingham Forest, Bristol City and Wigan Athletic among those to be linked with a move, Burnley could exercise the option to recall Wells to recoup the transfer fee paid two-and-a-half years ago.
