Exclusive: QPR plot swoop to sign Chelsea defender

EXCLUSIVE By Pete O’Rourke

Chelsea defender Jay Dasilva is a target for Championship duo Queens Park Rangers and Bristol City, Football Insider understands.

The highly-rated full-back, 21, spent last season on loan at Bristol City and the club are keen on signing the player on a permanent basis.

A Chelsea source has told Football Insider that Dasilva’s form has alerted a number of other clubs and QPR are understood to be keen to lure him to Loftus Road.

The Europa League winners have yet to make a decision on Dasilva’s future, but they could opt to loan him out next season rather than sell him due to their impending transfer ban.

A loan deal would suit QPR, who are in the market for a new left-back this summer following Jake Bidwell’s departure at the end of the season.

Dasilva is among their top targets as they look to reshape the squad following the recent appointment of Mark Warburton as the new manager.

The left-back made 32 appearances for Bristol City last season and established himself as a fans’ favourite at Ashton Gate.
