Albion defender Ezequiel Schelotto has attracted an offer from a Championship club.

The Argus can reveal the right-back is wanted on a season-long loan and QPR are keen to sign Israeli striker Tomer Hemed on the same basis.

The nature of both deals is under consideration by the Seagulls.

Schelotto has emerged as a transfer target after he was omitted from Albion's 25-man Premier League squad.

The deadline-beating capture of Valencia right-back Martin Montoya left Albion with 18 players categorised as non-homegrown and they are only allowed to name 17.

Schelotto, 29 (below), has dropped to third-choice for the position behind currently injured captain Bruno and Montoya.

The Argus: The Argentinian-born Italian joined Albion from Sporting Lisbon at the end of last summer's transfer window.

Schelotto made 20 Premier League appearances last season but Bruno reclaimed the right-back spot in the later stages of the campaign.

The Argus revealed earlier this month QPR's interest in target man Hemed, who is below Glenn Murray, Jurgen Locadia and summer signing Florin Andone in the pecking order.

Both Schelotto and Hemed have also attracted interest, rather than firm offers, from abroad although both are understood to prefer remaining in England where they are settled with their families.

Championship clubs have until the end of the month to finalise their squads.
