Queens Park Rangers have revealed who will be leaving the football club following the end of their contract. There are no huge surprises on who is going, especially as it is quite a short list! The majority of those departing are youngsters, with only one first-teamer allowed to depart.
Talks continue with two more players over remaining at the club, whilst two more signed extensions earlier this week to stay at Loftus Road for a little while longer. Ian Holloway is targeting an improved showing from QPR next season and big change is likely over the summer months in relation to recruitment.
34-year-old Karl Henry exits after falling out of favour with Holloway some time ago. This is because of a falling out between the pairing, meaning he hasn’t even played a competitive game in 2017. The last time he appeared in a Hoops shirt was the 2-1 home defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers back in December 2016. It brings to an end a four-year stay at the club, where he played over 100 games.
Ravel Morrison and Kazenga LuaLua have both returned to Lazio and Brighton & Hove Albion respectively following the conclusion of their loan deals. Youngsters Brandon Comley and Daniel Rowe are still in discussions with the club over agreeing upon an extension. Yesterday it was revealed that forwards Jamie Mackie and Reece Grego-Cox have both penned one-year contract extensions to remain with the club.
Released: Karl Henry.
In discussions: Brandon Comley & Daniel Rowe.
Signed new contracts: Jamie Mackie & Reece Grego-Cox.
There have been reports of interest in midfielder Michael Doughty too, according to West London Sport, but he still has a year remaining on his contract.
