Ilias Chair, a midfielder for Queens Park Rangers, claims that despite prior connections to Leeds United, this is not the moment to consider a transfer.


After Luis Sinisterra’s incredibly late loan movement to Bournemouth, Leeds was linked to a deadline day move for Chair back in the summer, but Jaidon Anthony ended up going the opposite way as his replacement.


According to journalist Darren Witcoop, QPR valued Chair at about £6 million at the time, but Leeds refused to trade him because of how slowly they moved.


And with the January transfer window quickly approaching, Chair was questioned about his future in an interview with Football League World earlier this week.


While he states that his “full focus” is still on helping QPR avoid relegation, he leaves the door open, stating that he would “think about” accepting an offer.


In January, Leeds needs a number ten.


He declared: “I can’t be distracted by anything else right now because QPR is my only priority.” I owe this club a great deal, so the least I can do is give it my all in every practice and game I play for QPR.


That is the moment to consider it if something ever did come to pass. All that matters at the moment is QPR. The objective is to maximise both my own and the team’s potential.

This season, Leeds has relied heavily on Georginio Rutter’s inventiveness, but when he is not playing at his best, they lack much else in the middle when it comes to breaking down opponents.


Leeds is anticipated to have a quiet January transfer window, according to Daniel Farke, but given their recent inability to penetrate deep defences, it would be stupid to not at least try to buy an offensive midfielder.


Although it has to be seen if Chair is the ideal candidate to take Leeds’ place, he has shown that he is a capable player at this level.
