Wycombe Statement re QPR's Tommy Doherty - Deny QPR Seeking Anything Approaching £100,000

Wycombe Official Site - Doc Deal Not Dead

Managing Director Steve Hayes has denied newspaper reports that Wanderers have been asked to pay £100,000 to sign Tommy Doherty from Queens Park Rangers.

"It's true that Rangers have asked for a fee," Hayes told wwfc.com today, "but it's nowhere near the figure that was reported. "

QPR chairman Gianni Paladini was quoted as saying: "It's very simple. We just can't afford to let Tommy go for free." But Hayes retorted: "What Rangers haven't pointed out is how much it would cost them in wages if Tommy was to see out the remaining twelve months of his contract. They will actually save money if they let him come to us now."

The player himself has made it known that he would like to join Wanderers following his successful loan spell last season. "The Doc" has attracted interest from a number of clubs, but he's hoping to return to Adams Park where supporters voted him their player of the season after making less than 30 appearances in League Two.

Manager Paul Lambert has publicly declared that he'd like to include Doherty in his new-look line-up for next season and Blues fans are desperate to see the Northern Ireland international return to Adams Park. Wycombe
