QPR reportedly make decision on out-of-contract duo
The Sun understands that Junior Hoilett and Rob Green will not be offered contract extensions at Queens Park Rangers. The pair are out of contract this summer, and manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is expected to make several changes to his squad.
It won’t come as a big surprise to hear that Green is set to leave Loftus Road, as he hasn’t featured in the first-team set up for some time. However Hoilett scored at the weekend and has been playing a part. It is quite likely that his high wages could be the reason for his potential departure from QPR.
36-year-old Green is another who is believed to be one of the higher earning players with the club, and with promotion to the Premier League extremely unlikely, Hasselbaink is making decisions on who to keep and retain ahead of next season. Green, who has 12 England caps, started the season as the number one goalkeeper but hasn’t started a game since January 1st. It is believed that if he plays a certain amount of games this season, that would trigger a contract extension.
Hoilett, a Canadian international, was frozen out earlier this season under Chris Ramsay. He has enjoyed much more football since Hasselbaink joined from League One high-flyers Burton Albion. However the Dutchman has been told to trim the wage structure at the club, and Hoilett could pay the price for that. He has scored five goals in 20 Championship appearances this season, including in the weekend home win over play off chasing Birmingham City.
There is bound to be some interest in either player, should they enter the world of being a free agent. There had been talk of both leaving the club earlier this season, or over the summer after the club were relegated from the Premier League.
