Former Blackburn Rovers striker Leon Best is training with Championship side QPR, according to reports.

Best left former club Blackburn Rovers in July after he and the club mutually agreed to cancel his contract.  This cancelled the final 12 months of a 4-year contract during which Best earned £30,000 per week.

The striker did not do well at Blackburn and made only 16 appearances in 3 years at the club, scoring 2 goals.  However it did not help that he missed the whole of his first season at the club through injury.

Best was loaned out twice during his time at Blackburn, first to Sheffield Wednesday, where he scored 5 goals in 14 appearances and then to Derby.  The striker did not do as well here, and failed to score in 20 appearances.

The striker played at QPR on loan for a month in 2004/05 and is now back with the London club.  It is understood that Best will train with the side in an attempt to earn a contract.
