Mail/Mel Henderson - QPR set to offer £4m for Ipswich Town's Jon Walters but striker is eyeing Premier League move
- QPR are prepared to pay £3million-plus for transfer-seeking Ipswich forward Jon Walters.
- But they are not guaranteed to clinch his capture because the Birkenhead-born player is looking to return north.
- Another complication is that the ambitious Hoops cannot match Walters’ current deal, which still has two years to run.
- Walters, 26, prefers the option of a move to Stoke or West Brom but the Premier League clubs’ offers fall way short of Ipswich’s £4m valuation.
- The Tractor Boys insist he is going nowhere until they receive the right offer and the stalemate could yet rebound on the player.
- Walters, who sold his Ipswich home and moved into rented accommodation in readiness for a move away from Portman Road, was adamant he would be on his way in the August transfer window.
- He even refused to take part in a pre-season Sky Sports interview along with two team-mates because he did not want to be filmed in an Ipswich strip.
- Meanwhile, negotiations are on-going while Walters remains in the doghouse following a bust-up with boss Roy Keane. Walters has been stripped of the captaincy and told he will never play for Ipswich again as long as Keane remains as manager.
Sportsmail understands that Walters even complained to club hierarchy that he was being bullied by Keane, a claim that was dismissed. It has been an incredible sequence of events for Walters, who was bought from Chester by previous boss Jim Magilton at a cost of just £150,000 in January 2007.
- Keane has consistently sung Walters’ praises after installing him as captain and recently labelled him the second-best player in the Championship last season behind Charlie Adam, the skipper of promoted Blackpool. But the player is faced with the nightmare scenario of having to remain frozen out at Portman Road until at least the January transfer window if Ipswich dig their heels in regarding their valuation.
- Or Walters, whose wife is particularly keen to relocate to the North West, will be forced to consider the option of a move to west London Mail

Fulham Chronicle/Yann Tear - Alejandro Faurlin makes QPR admission
- ALEJANDRO Faurlin admits skill alone will not be enough to keep him in the QPR side this year.
- The Argentinian is one of the most gifted players in the Championship and had an eye-catching debut season last time out.
- But the rigorous demands of a 46-game campaign will require perspiration as much as inspiration if he's to keep his spot in Neil Warnock's starting XI.
- “The manager knows how he wants us to play and we know – players maybe like me and Akos [Buzsaky] - that if we don't play hard for the team, we won't play,” Faurlin said.
- “We know it's not enough to be skilful. We have to work hard as well. But we have this mix in the way we play and we are prepared to work very hard.
- “We have a big squad that is very competitive and we will have to try and give 100 per cent in every game.
- “I feel more settled here now after a full season and I think I can do better this time. My aim is to score more goals, but it's a question of quietly doing work, work, work.” Fulham Chronicle

Fulham Chronicle/Paul Warburton - QPR boss sends Martin Rowlands warning
- MARTIN Rowlands will return to action for the first time in 10 months tomorrow – with a stark warning from his manager about the midfielder’s future.
- The Republic of Ireland player smashed his cruciate ligament playing for his country last October, and QPR boss Neil Warnock is only too aware time is running out for the 31-year-old.
- Rowlands will get a 30-minute run-out against West Ham in a closed doors friendly on Tuesday, with Warnock waiting to see if his advice has been heeded.
- The manager said: “Part of Rowly’s game is whole-hearted tackling - which has also cost him in the past.
- "And I think one of the ways we can improve him is to get him to release the ball earlier when he’s looking for a pass.” Fulham Chronicle
