Queens Park Rangers face a battle to hold on to star striker Lyndon Dykes, with a trio of Premier League clubs chasing his signing, UKTN understands.
Rangers landed the Australian-born Scottish international from Livingston last summer and it has already hit double the numbers. Dykes has scored 12 goals in all for the Loftus Road side, including six in his last six games for the club.
We can reveal that his performances caught the attention of several rivals.
It is understood that West Brom, Fulham and Burnley have all been watching him closely this year and are ready to test QPR’s resolution.
Dykes himself is preparing for a great summer as he is set to play for Scotland at the European Championships.

Allardyce streets missed opportunity
Sam Allardyce hired his January transfer company and believes West Brom should have given themselves a better chance at survival.
The Baggies welcome Wolves to the Premier League on Monday on the brink of collapse.
Albion, second down, is nine points from safety with five games to go.
The loss to Wolves would not confirm relegation but the Baggies are running out of time to save themselves.
“I thought we had changed as much as we could as quickly as possible,” said the boss Allardyce.
“We did better business in the Premier League than any other club in January with the quality of the players, the price and the difference they made for the team.
“Although we said a few more games or a little more time (could have been necessary) we didn’t really need it because when I look back before winning against Chelsea and Southampton we should have won three or four games before this.
“We had enough time, we just didn’t manage to seize the clear chances that we had created.
“It’s not so much me, but rather the club. I would love to be sitting here with more points on the board.
“We would have liked to have given ourselves a better chance. I would be disappointed (with relegation) with my record to keep the clubs in place, but the guys have done their best so far.
“We could fail, but it’s not for lack of trying.”
