Routledge to be loaned to QPR

Wayne Routledge, Newcastle United
Back to QPR on loan
Newcastle United’s Wayne Routledge looks likely to be loaned to QPR until the end of the season.

It is reported that Wayne Routledge, who has made 12 starts for us and 7 substitute appearances, mainly on the right wing, is to be loaned out to QPR until the rest of the season.

Apparently Wigan and Cardiff City were also after Routledge but it looks as if QPR will win the chase.

We signed Routledge from QPR in January last year on a contract running until June 2013. Opinion has been divided as to how effective he’s been on the right wing but it appears he’s surplus to Alan Pardew’s requirements at the moment.

That may be partly due to Joey Barton’s recent effectiveness in that role and of course Gosling and Guthrie are now back in contention for midfield positions too.

Note that this loan move has not been confirmed by the club yet.
