QPR boss Mark Hughes is blocking his fringe players from moving out on-loan.

The Daily Mail says Hughes will block attempts from Championship clubs to sign his fringe stars on loan.

A number of sides have been sniffing round a clutch of QPR's squad players with a view to securing them on temporary deals until the end of the year.

The likes of Hogan Ephraim, Brian Murphy and Shaun Derry have all attracted interest from the Football League.

But Hughes has instructed QPR technical director Mike Rigg not to consider any approaches for players named in his 25-man squad until further notice.
