QPR chairman Tony Fernandes says all offers have been rejected for playmaker Luke Freeman.

Rovers have been linked with a £4m move for the 26-year-old who had the third most assists in the Championship last season.

Middlesbrough and Sheffield United have previously shown interest in a move for the talented left-footer who still has two years left to run on his contract.

Fernandes took to Twitter earlier this month to say that Freeman was not for sale, and overnight he has again quashed any fears among the Rs fans that he would be forced in to selling.

He tweeted: “Very tiring reading all these tweets on Luke freeman. All offers been rejected. We are doing our best to strengthen not weaken. At least we have players that others want.  A far cry. Slowly building the right foundation.”

It is understood the previous bids turned down for Freeman were in the region of £3m.

There were suggestions that QPR, who were found to have breached FFP rules and will be under a transfer embargo during the January window, would contemplate a sale at around £4m for the player signed from Bristol City.

Freeman cost the Loftus Road club just £350,000 when signing 18 months ago, but Fernandes is seemingly unwilling to sell to any interested parties.

The deadline for permanent transfers closes at 5pm today.
