In our Loan Watch feature series, the Football Transfer Tavern takes a look at how a selection of players from a particular club are faring whilst they are away from their parent side, and provide a brief update regarding their form.
Here is an update on three QPR loanees currently plying their trade away from the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium:
In the third tier, goalkeeper Seny Dieng has continued his run of games between the sticks for Doncaster Rovers, having sat out the opening weeks of the season on the bench.
He was in action in midweek as they overcame AFC Wimbledon in an FA Cup first-round replay, keeping a clean sheet in the process.
Meanwhile, he has appeared in the club’s last seven League One matches as the Swiss-born Senegalese ‘keeper continues to impress on loan.
Osman Kakay was awarded a full 90 minutes prior to the international break as his short-term loan spell at Partick Thistle continues.
The Scottish Championship side have used the 22-year-old sparingly so far, with Kakay appearing just six times throughout the campaign, though he has started three of the club’s last five league matches.
His most recent appearance came almost a fortnight ago as he helped his side to overcome Morton and end a run of three straight league defeats.
Staying in Scotland, Niko Hamalainen has remained an ever-present for Kilmarnock since joining the side in mid-August.
The American-born Finn has recorded one assist since his move to the Scottish top flight, and has maintained his place at left-back, helping his side salvage a 2-2 draw with 10-man Hamilton before the international break.
There may not be too much in terms of fresh news due to the international period, though Seny Dieng’s progress at Doncaster has continued, albeit thanks to their earlier 1-1 draw against the Dons.
With the likes of Kakay and Hamalainen in action too, it seems they are striving to make the most of their spells away, as the former looks to gain the attention of Mark Warburton before he returns in January, along with Dieng.
But on the basis of the last few weeks, there seems every reason to hope that all three can return to give the side some added impetus once their loans conclude.
Can QPR make the play-offs this season?
