Mauricio Isla delays trip to London as QPR move hangs in the balance - reports

Juventus midfielder was meant to fly to London to complete loan move

Mauricio Isla has delayed a trip to London as his loan move to Queens Park Rangers hangs by a thread.

The Juventus and Chile man was meant to fly to the UK to complete his medical and complete a loan move, but has delayed the trip according to the Daily Mail.

However, the paper report that the potential deal could still be completed.

Harry Redknapp also enquired about Isla's Juventus team-mate Sebastian Giovinco on a loan deal, but was told that the tiny Italy striker will be staying with the Serie A champions.

QPR have also had a bid for Cardiff City midfielder Jordan Mutch rejected, but were handed a boost when striker Loic Remy joined up with the squad in Ireland.

The French striker's proposed move to Liverpool fell through after he failed to complete a medical.
