Sheffield Wednesday interested in QPR defender Masterson

Sheffield Wednesday are interested in signing QPR defender Conor Masterson on loan.

The Irish centre-back, 22, recently completed a loan spell at Cambridge United and Rangers are keen for him to pick up more first-team experience.

His next move could well to be to League One play-off contenders Wednesday, where QPR winger Olamide Shodipo is currently on a season-long loan.

Crewe and Fleetwood Town, both struggling near the bottom of the third tier, are also interested in Masterson.

Signed on a free transfer in the summer of 2019 after being released by Liverpool, Masterson had played no senior football at all when he arrived in west London.

He has since made 16 Championship appearances but is not in manager Mark Warburton’s short-term first-team plans.

Jordy de Wijs’ recent return to the squad after injury and the imminent arrival of Dion Sanderson on loan from Wolves will boost Warburton’s options at centre-back, paving the way for Masterson to go elsewhere.

Meanwhile, QPR will assess Stefan Johansen ahead of Tuesday’s home match against Swansea.

The captain missed Saturday’s 2-1 win at Coventry after taking a knock in training.
