Yeovil Town are being linked with a move for Queens Park Rangers midfielder Sean Goss. The 21 year old former Exeter City and Manchester United youth product has been tipped for a loan move ahead of Thursday's transfer window deadline, and a report tonight has claimed that the Glovers are the main team that has expressed interest in taking him on.
Born in Wegberg, Germany on October 1st 1995, but with his family having moved to Crediton, he had been part of Exeter's Academy system since the age of eight years old, but was sold to Manchester United for a fee of £100,000 at the age of 17 years old after he had scored 13 times for Exeter's Under-16s. That led to him getting a trial with United as part of a youth tournament in the Netherlands before they took him on in the summer of 2012.
Goss made it as far as Manchester United's first team bench, being named on their teamsheet in a November 2015 match against Watford, but never made it as far as getting onto the pitch. Instead, he was signed by Queens Park Rangers in January 2017 on a three-and-a-half year contract for £500,000. He played six times at Championship level for QPR during the 2016-17 season - three starts and three substitute appearances - but has not been involved this season.
The West London press, who name Yeovil Town as interested in his services, suggest that manager Ian Holloway - who was the man who brought him to Loftus Road - does not currently see him as being in his first team plans, and so has offered him up to other clubs.
His profile and position would tend to fit other recent Yeovil Town targets, with the Glovers having chased Birmingham City midfielder Corey O'Keeffe and Huddersfield Town midfielder Regan Booty but without either deal reaching fruition. The feeling is that the Glovers are after one last loan deal before the transfer window shuts, and that a defensive midfielder is their primary target, with only James Bailey able to operate in that position as a preferred role.
