According to Get West London (GWL), the agent of QPR player Yeni N’Gbakoto has refused to deny the possibility of a move for his client from QPR to Toulouse.

Agent Philippe Fiorentino was speaking to a Toulouse fan website and, whilst not denying he was in contact with the French club, he said the arrival of winger N’Gbakoto was unlikely.

Speaking of his client’s views and plans, Fiorentino said: “A return to France is not the priority. The project was to put one foot in England, and then to stay there to get first League (the Premier League).”

N’Gbakoto arrived from French side Metz during the first week of August last year, missing the first game of QPR’s season, a 3-0 defeat of Leeds United. He played in the next four games, with each appearance seeing him clock up more than 65 minutes.

However, he was unable to claim a solid place in the squad, not being selected for the squad on 14 occasions, making 26 appearances across last season’s campaign, and coming off the bench 13 times. He completed just five complete 90 minute games for QPR, his 26 games for QPR averaging out at around 52 minutes per appearance.

GWL say that French side Toulouse did make an offer for N’Gbakoto before he left Metx, but the Croix-born 25-year-old of DR Congolese heritage decided to head to England to continue his football career.

They also go on to say that his future is uncertain, saying that the cause of this ‘uncertainty’  are “reports that he is unsettled following a difficult first season in English football.”
