Rangers close in on loan signing of QPR midfielder Sean Goss

Rangers manager Graeme Murty is set to complete his first signing of the January transfer window with a loan move for QPR midfielder Sean Goss. The 22-year-old has failed to break into Ian Holloway’s side this term following his £800,000 move from Manchester United in January last year and made just three starts and three substitute appearances last season.

Goss has reportedly travelled to Glasgow to undergo a medical with the Ibrox side today ahead of the club travelling to the States to play in the Florida Cup.

The left-sided player was initially handed the number 10 jersey by the London club but subsequently was given the number 19 shirt after QPR retired the number 10 in honour of legend Stan Bowles, who is currently suffering from Alzheimer's.

The arrival of Josh Scowen on a free transfer from Barnsley this summer, looks to have pushed the former United youngster down the pecking order at Loftus Road and with three years left on his contract, he is looking for regular first-team football.

Meanwhile, Rangers are looking to cancel Andy Halliday's loan spell at Gabala in Azerbaijan early following injuries to Ryan Jack, Graham Dorrans and Kenny Miller which has left Murty with few options to choose from in midfield.
