The transfer window closed yesterday at midnight, ushering in a morning of each expected and unexpected surprises within the football world.
Perhaps most players would wish to play in the highest flight slightly than within the championship side, but that’s not the case with Irish midfielder, Jeff Hendrick, who is worked up to depart Newcastle United for QPR on loan.
The 30-year old is contracted to the Magpies for 4 years, from 2020, and had no problem staying the entire term until his game time was drastically minimized following a red card last season.
For the entire of last month, as an example, the Republic of Ireland international hadn’t made a single start, managing a pitiful 4 substitute appearances, and he wasn’t satisfied. “Anyone who knows me well will know I will likely be disillusioned with the sport time I even have got this season,” he said.
When a loan deal got here by, albeit to a championship side, Hendrick grabbed the possibility to prove himself, leading to a successful loan move to White City before the winter transfer window closed yesterday.
QPR, who’re currently fighting for promotion to the EPL, think Jeff Hendrick is the fitting person to push their side towards achieving that goal given his experience and quality, and are only as pleased to have him.
“I’m delighted to bring Jeff in. Jeff has shown his quality…on the international stage and within the Premier League…that championship experience…may be so necessary,” praised The Hoops manager, Mark Warburton.
It’s now as much as the Irish to prove his value, and maybe help his side get back within the Premier League.
