Dave McIntyre/Kilburn Times - Bisch switch off
- QPR have scrapped plans to sign midfield playmaker Amaury Bischoff from Arsenal.
- Bischoff, whose long-term future at the Emirates is unclear, had been pencilled in to play during QPR's end-of-season visit to Bahrain ahead of a possible move to the club.
-However, talks with the Gunners have reached a dead end and the French-born 22-year-old, who has represented Portugal at under-21 level, now looks unlikely to sign for Rangers.
- Bischoff has been a peripheral figure since his surprise move to Arsenal from Werder Bremen last summer and has made just three susbstitute appearances for the first-team, all in cup competitions.
- But the Rs will soon make their decision on whether to sign Chelsea teenager Jordan Tabor, who has been on trial at Loftus Road.
- The 18-year-old left-back has been closely assessed since his arrival and recently played for Rangers' reserves before featuring for the youth team during a trip to Sardinia.
- With his opportunities at Chelsea limited, the player is hoping to secure a move to W12 ahead of next season.
- Tabor said: "I'm still with Chelsea but obviously if QPR offer me a contract, it would be something to think about.
-"I think QPR are an emerging club with a lot of ambition and joining them would be a good opportunity for me. We'll have to see what happens."
- Rangers - who confirmed this week that they will play a friendly against the Bahrain national team on Thursday May 7, as part of their sponsorship deal with Gulf Air - are keen to sign a left-back this summer to provide competition for Damien Delaney.
- The club are also hoping to sign Bristol City's veteran target man Dele Adebola on a Bosman free transfer and have shown some interest in Swindon's 28-goal forward Simon Cox.
- And the Rs have also made initial enquiries about Swansea City midfielder Darren Pratley.
- The former Fulham man, who had two loan spells at Brentford, has played a significant role in Swansea's challenge for a play-off place this season. Kilburn Times
