MK Dons boss Karl Robinson wants to sign QPR youngster Angelo Balanta permanently when his loan spell ends.
Striker Balanta, 20, has started only 10 games for Rangers and joined the Dons on a season-long deal in August.
He has hit three goals in 16 appearances so far this term, including a spectacular long-range effort in Saturday's 2-0 win at Brentford.
Robinson said: "Angelo needs to play football regularly for the next three years.
"He has only been a pro for a couple of years and will peak at 25 or 26. I would love to keep him."
