Hogan Ephraim: Could join Toronto FC on loan from QPR

Ephraim has fallen out of favour at QPR in recent seasons, taking in loan spells at Leeds, Charlton and Bristol City.

Payne hopes to complete a loan deal for the 24-year-old in the next 48 hours.

"We're in hopefully the final stages of signing him to a loan agreement with Queens Park Rangers," he was quoted as saying on the official MLS website.

"We hope that will be concluded in the next day or two."

Reports suggest attacking midfielder Bostock and striker Earnshaw will arrive at the Canadian club on Wednesday.

Earnshaw recently took in a loan spell at Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv and is out of contract at Cardiff in the summer.

Payne added: "[Earnshaw] arrives to take a look at us and for us to take a look at him to see if that's a fit that might work.

"It's a little too early to tell if that's going to happen."

Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
