Martin Jol answered questions following the 1-1 draw against Real Betis. In his comments, he confirmed that Adel Taarabt is set to join the squad pending the medical.
"We agreed everything with the club so the only thing we have to do is a medical," Jol said. "If that is sound, he will join us" #FFC #QPR— Simon Peach (@SimonPeach) August 5, 2013
The more upsetting aspect of this is that it appears to be just a loan with no purchase option. I'm not sure I'm a big fan of doing that, as I'd like to be able to hold onto the player if he performs well.
I asked Jol for breakdown of the Taarabt deal but would only say it is a loan. Suggests there is no option to buy #QPR #FFC— Simon Peach (@SimonPeach) August 5, 2013
In other comments he seemed to imply that the Bent deal was still on, but the deal for Osvaldo was too expensive.
