Ryan Manning's future is still very much up in the air at the minute. The QPR player has yet to feature for the club in the Championship this season, instead lining out for their U23 side on a couple of occasions.

That is down to the player's contract situation. The Galway native has entered the final 12 months of his contract, with manager Mark Warburton unwilling to use members of his squad who he feels are not committed to the club.

Discussions over a new contract are thought to have had little progress. However, there also seems to have been no movement on a potential transfer away from Loftus Road.

A number of clubs were linked with the 24-year old over the summer, but it remains to be seen who still holds an interest this late in the window. Apparently, a move to the Premier League may still be on the cards.


According to the Daily Mirror, West Ham still hold an interest in signing Ryan Manning during the current transfer window.

The Premier League club have experience a decent start to the season, winning two of their opening four league fixtures. David Moyes still wants to strengthen the squad with a left back thought to be a priority.


Manning was the most creative left back in the Championship last season, thriving in the role having spent most of his career up to that point playing on the wing or the centre of midfield.

It is rumoured that QPR would accept a fee of around £5million for the player. This would represent excellent value for West Ham, even accounting for his contract situation.

There is also no real rush to complete the deal. While the Premier League transfer window for oversea transfers closes this evening, domestic deals can still be completed for another while yet. Deals between English clubs can do done up until October 15th.
