Warburton rejects Dykes’ claims FootballFanCast.com
Posted On May 5, 2021
Queens Park Rangers central striker Lyndon Dykes is good enough to play at the highest levels in the game.
What are we talking about?
That’s according to QPR boss Mark Warburton, who recently told the Daily Mail (via Not The Old Firm) that the 25-year-old could play at a much higher level than he is at the moment.
And if a recent TEAMtalk report is to be believed, it could happen sooner rather than later, with all three from West Bromwich Albion, Fulham and Burnley planning to consider a £ 1.8m move forward this summer. transfer window.
Warburton said: “I have no doubt what Lyndon can achieve. He can go and play at a much higher level – at the highest level … he showed the exceptional work ethic that will take him there. “
Will Dykes leave QPR this summer?
After joining Livingston’s QPR in a £ 1.98 million deal last summer, life began relatively slowly for the Dykes at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, as despite scoring two goals in his first two games for the club, the striker scored only three goals in his next 30 appearances in the championship.
However, the £ 8,000-a-week ace has resurfaced in recent weeks, scoring seven goals in his last eight league games, in addition to three assists over the same period.
This form seems to have piqued the interest of a number of clubs in the 25-year-old’s potential move, although QPR fans will no doubt hope Dykes stays in West London in the summer to help Rs organize a promotion next season.
As such, Warburton’s remarks about the striker seem to have come at a rather awkward time, as although they were apparently intended in addition to the Scottish national team, they also reveal that the 58-year-old believes Dykes can play at a much higher level than it is at the moment – something that may come as a bit of worrying news for the Hoops loyal, especially against the backdrop of reports of interest from the Premier League.
