Martin Goes On Loan

Queens Park Rangers have confirmed that they have signed Martin Cranie on a three month loan deal from Portsmouth.

The highly-rated 20-year-old has only played 45 minutes of league football against Manchester United (barring a late sub appearance) and just managed one full game against Leeds this season. Harry has obviously sent him out on loan to gain first team experience with Johnson and Lauren keeping the former Saint out of the side at present.

Cranie is likely to go straight into the first team for tonight's clash with Norwich and that game can be seen live on Sky tonight. The Loftus Road side are currently bottom of the Championship and without a win all season.

Managerless QPR have also been linked with Tony Adams but Harry insists he's going nowhere and that Rangers' co-owner, Flavio Briatore, contacted him for some advice over who should take the reins at the club. The speculation started when Briatore was spotted at Craven Cottage yesterday.
