Queens Park Rangers remain the likeliest destination for Albion striker Tomer Hemed by the end of the month.

Rangers chief Steve McClaren is still keen on landing the 31-year-old Israeli target man.

The Argus revealed Rangers' interest earlier this month.

Championship clubs have until August 31 to complete loans with a view to a permanent deal.

Fringe midfielder Oliver Norwood made a loan-to-buy move to Sheffield United earlier this week.

Glenn Murray, Florin Andone and Jurgen Locadia are ahead of Hemed in the fight for forward places at Albion.
