Dozzell, Kelman and more: What the summer could hold for QPR’s loaned out players

QPR looked to be sleepwalking towards relegation and towards League One football, but three wins on the spin have given themselves some breathing space.

QPR are currently in 19th position in the table, but are level on points with Stoke City who currently occupy a spot in the relegation zone. With 11 games left to play, they could already have one eye on next season.

Current boss Marti Cifuentes has already had one transfer window under his belt. Yet although their priority will be retaining their Championship status for another season, those behind the scenes will be keeping an eye on those out on loan and returning in the summer.

Here are four players who are currently out on loan and we look at what the summer could hold for the quartet.

Andre Dozzell

The 24-year-old joined fellow Championship outfit Birmingham City in January and is set to return to QPR in the summer. Both sides are competing to stay in the division and so his future at his parent club won’t necessarily be a huge focus at this time.

However, his contract at Loftus Road is set to come to an end in June. It is likely he would be offered a new deal, despite having been allowed to leave on loan.

Charlie Kelman

Since joining the Hoops in 2020, Kelman has been shipped out on loan four times. He currently finds himself in League One with Wigan Athletic and so doesn’t look to be in the first-team plans at parent club QPR as things stand.

The 22-year-old striker could be a valuable asset to QPR should they drop into League One. However, if they do remain in the second tier, given that his contract is up in the summer, he may be allowed to leave for free and seek pastures new.

Stephen Duke-McKenna

The 23-year-old is another who is out of contract in June and currently finds himself out on loan. He is at Sutton United in League Two but has started just four games since making the move.

All will depend on what division QPR are playing their football in next season but there are several players ahead of him in the pecking order as things stand and so a new contract will not be a priority.

Joe Gubbins

Gubbins is at a stage in his career where he will want to be playing every week. Now aged 22, on his fourth loan spell away from his parent club and out of contract in the summer, he may have already played his last game for QPR.
