Tom Rogic: QPR have joined the chase for the Central Coast Mariners midfielder

The 20-year-old is currently on trial with Celtic and has been linked with a string of clubs, with Reading having already expressed an interest in holding talks.

Fulham, Celta Vigo, Rayo Vallecano and Club Brugge are also reported to be keen and Turnbull is waiting to see what develops.

Turnbull told au.fourfourtwo.com: "We can confirm that QPR have provided a formal letter and another is expected from another Premier League club.

"Glasgow Celtic appear to have been impressed with Tom during his stay in Spain, and have requested that Tom travel back to Glasgow with them to view their facilities, and see Glasgow first-hand.

"It is not surprising to see Tom in such demand, and from such big clubs. We are proud to have been able to give Tom this opportunity, and are especially pleased to see the quality of the clubs that have shown interest in him and subsequently the Central Coast Mariners."

Rogic's agent Andrew Bernal acknowledged the player is facing a tough decision regarding his future due to the demand for his services.

Bernal said: "He is enjoying training with Celtic at the moment but Tom has some decisions to make and it will have to be a club that is right for him."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
