QPR have enquired about the possibility of bringing Aston Villa’s Tim Iroegbunam back but a reunion is unlikely at this stage, West London Sport has said.
QPR had 20-year-old talent Iroegbunam on loan from Aston Villa last season and the midfielder displayed why he’s highly regarded back with his parent club. The ex-West Brom youngster played 32 times across all competitions, chipping in with two goals in the process.
He performed well at Loftus Road and among many, the assumption would be that a loan at a higher level could await him – either that or a chance in Villa’s first-team.
Now, West London Sport has said that QPR have made an ambitious enquiry into the possibility of brining Iroegbunam back again. The R’s are interested in bringing him back but indeed, the chances are slim.
The report adds that Villa are considering a senior role for Iroegbunam and if he is made available, there is interest from numerous other clubs.
It remains to be seen just what Aston Villa decide to do with Iroegbunam this season. To that point, his future is in their hands, with a first-team role or another loan also possible.
From QPR’s perspective, it is definitely worth putting the feelers out about a possible reunion. He’d be a great coup on a second loan and if the door opens for him to head out again, their position on a deal has already been made known.
However, if he is sent out on loan, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he finds himself at a higher level. That could come in the form of a team further up the Championship table or perhaps abroad, but time will tell just what his parent club decide is best for the promising midfielder.
