QPR do not have to wait until the summer to buy Emmanuel Ledesma but will nevertheless wait to seal the Argentine's permanent signing.
The club has the option of signing Ledesma for around £2.2m at the end of his season-long loan from Genoa but are free to complete the deal before then.
And they would have been forgiven for looking to do just that after his midweek master-class.
Ledesma is already a fans' favourite at Loftus Road and has netted four goals in two matches having also scored in Saturday's 2-0 win over Doncaster.
But QPR sporting director Gianni Paladini said: "We just want to give him time to settle in and enjoy his football.
"We don't have to wait until the summer to sign him but we have him for a year and don't have to worry about anyone else signing him. There's no need to rush.
"We have a few young players we just want to gel together and be happy here. We're focused on that for now."
Ledesma's devastating performance on Tuesday was no real surprise given some of his earlier displays.
He was also excellent against Doncaster, scoring his first goal for the club after Dexter Blackstock had given Rangers the lead by nudging home Dani Parejo's free-kick.
Blackstock said: "It was a good all-round performance from us against a good Doncasterside, so we're very happy with that.
"At Sheffield United we got caught cold and conceded two early goals. This time that happened to Doncaster and they couldn't get back into the game, which was exactly what happened to us at Bramall Lane."
The goal was Blackstock's second of the season and the forward's confidence seems to be returning after a difficult spell last term.
But individual glory looks like coming second for whoever plays up front for Rangers this season given the number of attacking midfielders the club has.
The role is likely to be about creating space for the likes of Parejo, Ledesma and Lee Cook to get into dangerous areas and Martin Rowlands is also back in the reckoning, coming on as a substitute against Doncaster following a threematch ban.
With Akos Buzsaky on the way back from injury with Rowan Vine eyeing a return from a broken leg later in the season, Rangers will eventually have even more attacking midfield options and the lone striker role Blackstock performed at the weekend is probably a sign of things to come.
That will allow the Parejo, who is adjusting well, and Ledesma, who has made such a big impact, to carry on doing what they do best.
"The Rangers fans aren't stupid - they know a good player when they see one so it's no surprise the fans have taken to them," Blackstock added.
"It could have taken time for them to settle in a foreign country but they've come in - the boys here have helped them along the way - played well and they're going to be a great asset for us this season.
"It's a hard shift on your own up front, everyone knows that, but if I can do the job of two people up there it allows people from midfield to get on the ball more and dictate the game.
"It's for the team. If we can win games with me playing up front on my own, then so be it.
"It's a tough position but I got great support from Dani Parejo, Emmanuel Ledesma and Lee Cook, so at times it was like we had three or four up front. It wasn't like I was isolated.
"Everyone's in the team for their attributes. Some might be more creative than others and some might just be destroyers. It all combines for the team performance.
"The target is promotion and everyone at the club believes we can do it."
