QPR boss Neil Warnock is staying patient in his quest to sign Darren Ambrose from former club Crystal Palace.
The talented midfielder, who scored 20 goals for Palace last term, has been strongly linked with a move to Loftus Road but the CPFC 2010 consortium now running the Eagles have put any player sales on hold.
Rangers are reported to have bid £750,000 for his signature but still the deal hangs in the balance.
Warnock says he is happy to wait on his summer target who is said to be very keen to complete the switch.
"There's been no change. Darren obviously was very disappointed to more or less have the rug pulled from under his feet," Warnock told the club's official website.
"He'd already shook hands on everything. I think he was actually looking into a box for his family as well.
"I think Darren was very, very disappointed but it's their prerogative. I know the guys that are coming into 2010, they're good people and they want to do their best for the club.
"The offer's on the table and then we'll have to wait and see what will happen and obviously Darren's hoping he'll be able to move permanently. But I think we've just got to play it by ear over the next few weeks really."
