Queens Park Rangers manager Neil Warnock still expects to complete the permanent signing of Wayne Routledge from Newcastle.Routledge's agent recently suggested the player was set to return to Tyneside when his loan spell finishes at the end of the current campaign. [LNB]But Warnock said: "I really don't see any problems, to be honest. [LNB]"It's up to us now to dot the Is and cross the Ts. I think he's set his mind on coming here now, and we want him." [LNB]Routledge, 26, was loaned to Rangers in January - only a year after leaving Loftus Road to join Newcastle. [LNB]His return was with a view to a permanent move should Warnock's side reach the Premier League, and the Championship leaders are now one win away from sealing promotion. [LNB]Warnock has been linked with a host of other players ahead of his club's expected return to the top flight. [LNB]"There are players being bandied around that I've never even thought about. Let's get there [the Premier League] first," he added.
