Reports are linking us with a move for Jiangsu Suning defender Trent Sainsbury. Mile Jedinak’s Australian international teammate is said to be interesting us and QPR.

The 26-year-old is coming into the last year of his contract and could be available for a low price, although his performances at the World Cup are likely to have increased interest.

Some of our fans on Twitter don’t believe we have the money to buy the Aussie centre-half:


With Steve Bruce and the backroom staff still awaiting word from Tony Xia about whether the club can go forward with the summer transfer plans, the prospect of making a cash offer for a player does seem unlikely currently.

We still owe £11m to other clubs for previous transfers, and while Sainsbury’s agent has revealed the player is interested in moving to Europe, there will be competition for his signature which we may not be able to compete with.
