On Thursday, journalist Pieter-Jan Calcoen reported Queens Park Rangers are ‘pushing ahead’ to sign Royal Antwerp’s Michael Frey.

This is backed up by other Belgian newspapers today, including Het Laatste Nieuws and Gazet van Antwerpen.

QPR are ready to offer an escape route to the 29-year-old, who hasn’t made an appearance this season.

HLN state the Switzerland international has been with Royal Antwerp’s B team this season after a fall out with manager Mark van Bommel. It’s claimed the Championship side are ‘ready to take over’ his services on a ‘rental basis’ in the winter market.

Gazet van Antwerpen state his struggles at the Jupiler Pro League side could end soon.

Martí Cifuentes’ side have already contacted Royal Antwerp for the frontman and it looks like a deal could be concluded. It’s explained that the two clubs have ‘almost reached an agreement’, and QPR are now talking to Frey to sort out personal terms.

Frey has less than six months on his deal and the newspaper states Royal Antwerp could benefit from his exit in the winter market.

HLN claim QPR will sign Frey on a ‘rental basis’, while Gazet van Antwerpen don’t mention the type of operation.
