QPR defender Steven Caulker’s surprise move to Lokomotiv Moscow is looking increasingly unlikely, according to reports.
The 25-year-old centre-back has struggled to make an impact at Loftus Road since making a big-money move from Cardiff in 2014, spending time on loan at Southampton and Liverpool last term.
Caulker has made 14 appearances for QPR this season but has been in talks with Lokomotiv Moscow about a shock move to Russia.
Lokomotiv jumped the gun with several posts on social media suggesting the deal was close to completion last week and on Thursday posted a Twitter video suggesting the move was ‘cancelled’.
Press Association Sport calims that a deal is tentatively still being discussed, although a departure is now looking increasingly unlikely.
Caulker, who has made one senior appearance for England, has not played for QPR on October 28 due to a hip injury.
