The Australian playmaker was on target in a 2-0 behind-closed-doors friendly win over Barnet in midweek, but still seems to be a long way from the first-team reckoning.

The 22-year-old, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Brighton, told the Kilburn Times: "I think it can still work out for me at QPR. But, if not, I want to stay in Europe. If an opportunity comes up in January I'll look at it.

"I haven't had a good chat with the gaffer yet - when I have spoken to him I don't get a lot out of him and I really don't know whether I'm in his plans or not.

"Since John Gregory's been at the club, he's never played me in central midfield, not once. People can say what they like about me as a player but the fact is I've never played in my preferred position."
