QPR assistant boss Kevin Bond said midfielder Joey Barton's future was in doubt following his side's 1-0 win at Leeds.
Barton, who recently rejected interest from Crystal Palace, earned high praise from Bond for his performance against previously unbeaten Leeds.
The former Manchester City, Newcastle and Marseille midfielder had a valid goal disallowed for offside and delivered the free-kick for skipper Clint Hill's 75th-minute decider.
Bond said: "Joey has done very well for us. He missed both pre-season trips, but forced his way into the side, has played all the matches and has been very focussed."
Asked whether Barton would still be at the club after the transfer deadline, Bond replied: "I really don't know. Nothing would surprise me."
Rangers maintained their unbeaten start to the Championship season and Bond said: "I am really pleased with the result in a very tight game.
"We didn't get the ball down and play as much as we can, so it was really pleasing to remain unbeaten in the league, keep a clean sheet and get a win at a really difficult place against a team who I think will be there or thereabouts at the end of the season.
"At the time we couldn't see whether Joey was onside when his goal was disallowed, but after watching it again he wasn't offside. It was a difficult one for the officials, but in the end it didn't cost us."
