St Johnstone manager Steve Lomas is hoping to complete a loan deal for Queens Park Rangers midfielder Michael Doughty next week.

Doughty has already spent time training with the Saints squad and Lomas hopes to use his old London connections to tie-up the deal.

The Saints' boss said: "Michael was up to have a look around last week and we had a close look at him.

"Obviously I know Harry (Redknapp) well from our West Ham days and I know Marc Bircham (the London club's head of youth development) from my time at QPR.

"I think he would be a good asset to have, but a decision will have to be made in the next few days."

The Wales Under 19 international has already spent time on loan with Crawley Town and Aldershot.
