Mark Warburton believes QPR can keep their star players this summer with the hope there will not be a transfer window. 

QPR’s season was put on ice as the EFL were forced to suspend the season as a result of the coronavirus and speculation continues to mount on if or how the season can come to a conclusion.  

The lack of match action and uncertainty has caused the sports economy to endure issues with many furloughing staff or agreeing wage deferral deals with players and staff. 

Warburton took a voluntary pay cut at the beginning of April as QPR decided to furlough staff but the Rangers chief has seen the possibility of a positive outcome arising from the pandemic. 

“I don’t see how you can have, for example, a transfer window,” Warburton told Sky Sports News. 

“ How can you have a transfer window when people are being laid off and not paid and there are deferred payments. I just find it quite incredible.

“The whole game has got to accept it is an unprecedented situation, we keep saying it. How do we respond to it?”

“The game can’t expect to carry on as normal with what we’ve got through as general society.”


QPR’s success this season has been built on the form of some key young players such as Ebere Eze, Bright Osayi-Samuel and Illias Chair and with the forthcoming summer window on the horizon, a few of their players were being linked with moves to the Premier League. 


“There’s no doubt we’ve got two or three very talented young players who will attract interest,” Warburton added. 

“Their situation will be key for us.”
