Queens Park Rangers fans are reacting to report linking their midfielder, Massimo Luongo, with Sheffield Wednesday.
Luongo was mysteriously followed by the son of Wednesday’s chairman, Dejphon Chansiri, earlier this morning, before the Star’s Dom Howson verified the speculation.
It is claimed that the Australia international was due to undergo a medical with the Owls before joining for an undisclosed fee.
Luongo, who began his career in English football on the books of Tottenham Hotspur, moved to QPR from Swindon Town four years ago for £400,000.
Since then he has scored or made 26 goals in 145 Championship matches for Rangers.
But after entering the final year of his contract at Loftus Road, it appears the Londoners are ready to cash in rather than lose him for nothing next summer.

And several of a QPR persuasion would be pleased to see him go.
This is what they are saying on Twitter…
@victorpfffLuongo is so ******* underrated by some our fans and I really don’t understand why. Deserves better than us tbh. #QPR
According to the Star, Sheffield Wednesday will pay an undisclosed fee for Luongo, who The World Game reports will cost less than £3.3 million (although it is unclear by how much).
But given his contract situation is it unlikely that the 26-year-old will cost anywhere near that amount.
Nottingham Forest were also credited with an interest in Luongo, but according to RMC they will instead sign the former Sheffield Wednesday loanee, John Bostock, from Lens.
