QPR boss Warburton wary upping offer to Leeds, Burnley target Osayi-Samuel

QPR boss Mark Warburton insists they won't be held to ransom over Bright Osayi-Samuel's new contract.

The 22-year-old has been linked with a host of clubs including Leeds, Burnley and Celtic, thanks to his consistently good performances in the Championship.

"There are always things that crop up and occur. At times you hit a stalemate in certain discussions and negotiations," Warburton told West London Sport.

“But the talking goes on. We just have to wait and see what happens. Offers will be made and discussions are ongoing.

“There is and that always happens in any business. Sometimes you have to be strong and firm. QPR will do what's best for QPR. We have to.

“We have to look after QPR and although there might be some short-term pain, I think it's longer-term gain."
