Wycombe Wanderers manager Matt Bloomfield has provided a brief update regarding the future of centre back Chris Forino.

The 23-year-old began the opening day home loss to Exeter City on the bench, before coming on as a 64th minute substitute for Joe Jacobson.

Forino has been linked with a potential move to Queens Park Rangers this summer, and Bloomfield admitted that the interest needs to be dealt with ‘sensibly’.

Speaking after the 3-0 defeat against the Grecians, which saw the Chairboys go 2-0 down inside the first four minutes, he said: “We missed a lot of bodies during pre-season where we had to cancel games and rearrange matches as we didn’t have enough players.

“We also had far too many trialists play and we had a lot of our top performers not take part a lot during pre-season.

“Josh Scowen and Sam Vokes have only had four training sessions, Jason McCarthy and David Wheeler haven’t even been on the grass yet and Ryan Tafazolli has been in and out.

“Chris Forino has had a situation which we have had to deal with as sensibly as we possibly can due to interest from elsewhere.

“That’s obviously turned his head, but we have a responsibility to look after him as a young boy where can try and negotiate the best we can.

“He missed a lot of pre-season with the wrist operation he needed to have so it’s been far from ideal for him in terms of prep.

“However, I still believed in the team I sent out – there’s no question about that, but we’re missing a lot of top players.”

Up next for Wycombe is an away trip to Milton Keynes on August 8 in the League Cup.
