LEEDS United's plans to take Shaun Derry on loan have been scuppered after the midfielder was included in QPR's 25-man squad.
The Chronicle understands former boss Neil Warnock was keen to bring the 34-year-old back to Yorkshire for a second spell at Elland Road.
Derry has made just two substitute appearances for Rangers this season, and has slipped even further down the pecking order after the return to fitness of Alejandro Faurlin and the arrival of Esteban Granero from Real Madrid.
However, the former Crystal Palace man made the cut in the 25-man list submitted to the Premier League last night.
And R's chief Mark Hughes insists he has no plans to send the veteran out on loan.
He said: “All of those in the 25-man squad figure in our plans, even with the new players coming in."
