QPR have this week cast another eye over promising Hampton & Richmond Borough youngster Dean Inman.
The 20-year-old, who can play in the centre of midfield or defence, spent some of pre-season on trial at Loftus Road after impressing in Hampton's friendly with the Rs.
His hopes were then scuppered by injury, but having returned to action with the Hampton first team, Inman has been invited back by Rangers to show what he can do again.
A product of the Hampton youth system, Inman already has 70 first team appearances under his belt and was a virtual ever present for the Blue Square South side last season.
A link between the two clubs is already growing, with Hampton having taken highly-rated QPR youth player Bradley Simmonds, whose brother, James, already plays at Beveree, on loan.
QPR are also one of the clubs, with others believed to inclue Liverpool and Crystal Palace, keeping an eye on another promising Hampton youngster, Dan Thompson.
The striker has recently returned from a three-week trial with Stoke City, but sustained a minor head injury in last week's win over Weston-super-Mare.
Hampton boss Mark Harper added: “Deano is back at QPR this week, but we don't know what's happening with Dan yet as he had to come off with concussion in last week's game.
“As it's unlikely they would go straight into the first teams if they move, their new clubs might think they're better off playing on loan with us than sitting in their reserves.
“But we have got Bradley Simmonds on loan due to our link up with QPR, and we may get more players from them too.”
