Loan Ranger: Tottenham's Kyle Walker joined QPR last month[LNB]QPR manager Neil Warnock wants to keep versatile Tottenham defender Kyle Walker beyond his current month-long loan deal. [LNB]The 20-year-old made the move from north to west London last month as cover for first choice right-back Bradley Orr who was sidelined with a calf injury. [LNB]And former Sheffield United boss Warnock has been so impressed by Walker - also a former Blade - that he wants to keep him at Loftus Road for a longer period, despite Orr's imminent return to full-fitness.[LNB]'Kyle's a great player who can play at left-back, or in Shaun Derry's position, or at centre-back, so he's got a few strings to his bow,' said Warnock. 'It would be nice to have him on board.'[LNB]Walker, too, is likely to be keen on extending his stay due to the limited chance of first-team football at White Hart Lane. [LNB]Vedran Corluka and Alan Hutton are already fighting it out for the right-back slot at Tottenham, while left-back is equally competitive with Beniot Assou-Ekotto, Gareth Bale and even William Gallas ahead of Walker in the pecking order.[LNB]The Tottenham defender was on the bench on Tuesday as England Under 21s secured passage to next summer's European Championships in Denmark, with a goalless draw in Romania.[LNB] QPR 0 Millwall 0: Rangers lose perfect home record as Lions claim a pointSpurs youngster Walker snubs Hull to join QPR in month loan dealEngland U21s battle through to clinch European Championship spotTOTTENHAM HOTSPUR FC
