Queens Park Rangers have failed with a move for Manchester City's Nedum Onuoha, skysports.com understands.
The 24-year-old was left out of City's pre-season tour to America and was not included in their squad for the recent Dublin Super Cup.
But Onuoha is determined to prove himself at City - the club where he has spent his entire career.
A number of clubs are known to be keen on landing Onuoha, who spent last season on loan at Sunderland.
QPR were looking at a possible loan, but their enquiry was rebuffed last month by the player as Onuoha feels he still has a future at City and is looking stay put.
