Routledge: Impressed on loan
Queens Park Rangers boss Neil Warnock is confident of completing a deal to sign Wayne Routledge from Newcastle on a permanent basis
Routledge has been in impressive form for the Championship leaders since arriving on loan in January.
The winger has chipped in with four goals and five assists and Warnock is keen to keep him at Loftus Road.
However, Routledge's agent recently indicated he would return to St James' Park at the end of the season.
Despite the agent's claims, Warnock is hopeful of signing the former Crystal Palace star.
"I really don't see any problems, to be honest," said Warnock.
"It's up to us now to dot the Is and cross the Ts. I think he's set his mind on coming here now, and we want him."
