QPR defender could return to Germany, reveals agent

According to a report from German news outlet Sport1, Queens Park Rangers defender Toni Leistner could make a return to Germany, with his agent telling Sport1 that he could consider moving away from the club this summer.

Over the course of the summer transfer window, Queens Park Rangers have moved on a number of their big earning players, with the likes of Massimo Luongo leaving to join Sheffield Wednesday. Now, it has been said that centre-back Toni Leistner could be the latest to move away, with a return to Germany a possibility.

The report adds that Leistner would prefer to stay at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, but would consider a return to Germany if the opportunity presented itself. Leistner’s agent, Branko Panic, said:

“The situation at QPR is not ideal at the moment, Toni does not want to flee, but if he wants to make an interesting challenge, he will probably think about it. Of course, the Bundesliga, which he continues to follow closely, would be one of the first options.”

The 29-year-old was heavily involved over the course of last season, captaining the club throughout the campaign having been given the armband upon his arrival by former boss Steve McClaren. He played a total of 46 games across all competitions, scoring two goals and laying on one assist in the process.

The transfer window for European sides closes on September 2nd, which is now just under a week away. So, if QPR are keen to offload Leistner this summer, they will have to move quickly to find a move for the German centre-back.
