QPR’s Rob Hulse has hinted he would be open to making his three-month loan deal at Charlton permanent when the transfer window re-opens in January.

The 32-year-old sealed a temporary switch to The Valley on Monday having been frozen out at Loftus Road.

Hulse made his first appearance for Charlton as a second half substitute in their 2-1 Championship defeat to Watford on Tuesday night.

The former Derby County and Sheffield United striker is looking forward to putting his QPR nightmare behind him and returning to regular first team action with the Addicks.

When asked if he would be interested in a permanent transfer to Charlton, he said: “Well, maybe. Anything can happen really.”

“I’m just here to get back to playing football again and Charlton have given me the chance to do that.

“I’m very grateful so I’m going to do the best I can.”

QPR splashed out on 12 new signings during the summer and it was made clear to Hulse that he didn’t fit in with their plans when he was omitted from their Premier League squad and made to train with the youth team.

“It’s an unusual situation,” he said of his parent club.

“We got promoted and a lot of new players came in.

“In the summer there was a new influx of [players] again and it’s made pretty obvious that I wasn’t going to be part of the plans.

“But that’s fine, that’s football.”
