Mail/Standard - EXCLUSIVE: QPR line up loan swoop for Wigan striker Marlon King - 13th October 2009
- Queens Park Rangers are plotting a loan move for Wigan misfit Marlon King.
- The Jamaica international has struggled to make an impact with the Latics since sealing a big-money move from Watford last year.
- King was shipped out on loan to Middlesbrough and Hull City last season and is currently behind Hugo Rodallega and Jason Scotland in Roberto Martinez's attacking options.
- King is thought to be keen on returning to London in a bid to recapture the form that prompted then Latics chief Steve Bruce to spend £4m on him in January 2008.
And QPR manager Jim Magilton is keen on giving the 29-year-old a route back to the capital and is eyeing a temporary deal for the striker.
- Any move is subject to the future of underfire co-owner Flavio Briatore, who could be forced to give up his stake in the club if the Football League stop him from having any involvement with their 92 registered clubs over his controversial ban from Formula One. " Mail

- R's legend Rodney Marsh will be returning to Loftus Road this weekend, as the Hoops lock horns with high-flying Preston North End in the Coca Cola Championship.
- The former Rangers striker will be in the QPR Superstore between 1.30-2.00pm to sign copies of the popular Hooped Dreams book, available now for just £9.99.
- And as the roll out of our 'Be Our 12th Man' campaign continues, we've taken this opportunity to look back at an extract from Issue One of our popular QPR: The Official Magazine, when the man himself paid tribute to the R's faithful...
- Rodney Marsh has always got on well with the fans. There is one relationship in particular he describes as 'sensational, absolutely sensational,' but is at a loss as to the origins.
- "I don't know why it happened or how it happened. I would make mistakes and they'd cheer me. They started the 'Rod-nee' chant. When I first came I came with a reputation. They sung that to take the mick. But after I scored 20 goals it became an original and iconic chant.
- "Other teams copied it, using other people's names, but it was a Rangers fan's original. The relationship was special and genuine and even after Stan (Bowles) came, they used the chant but with his name. I always had that affinity with the supporters."
- It's no surprise then that Marsh will always consider QPR as the closest to his heart. "My Club is QPR, I don't deny that to anyone. QPR was the happiest time of my football life. QPR
