QPR transfer news: Nasser El Khayati could be next to depart through Loftus Road exit door
15:30 10 January 2017
QPR will listen to offers for Nasser El Khayati during this month’s transfer window.
The Dutch playmaker, 27, has made just nine appearances in all competitions this season, starting just one game in the Championship.
As a result El Khayati has become increasingly frustrated over his lack of opportunities in W12, and is likely to head out of the Loftus Road exit door with two of his close allies, Sebastian Polter and Tjaronn Chery, already securing moves to Germany and China respectively, pending official confirmation from the Championship side.
Manager Ian Holloway has wasted no time on stamping his authority on his squad, already sanctioning moves for the aforementioned duo, while Ben Gladwin has moved to former club Swindon Town on loan until the end of the season.
Midfield general Karl Henry has been made available for transfer and made to train with the club’s development squad after a training ground bust-up with Holloway.
The Times understands the former Millwall boss is also prepared to let El Khayati leave on either a temporary or permanent basis, as the Rs prepare for another manic transfer window.
At this stage the former looks the more likely, with several League One clubs sounding out the former Burton Albion man.
In terms of incoming, on the Rs’ radar are Bournemouth striker Lewis Grabban and Bristol Rovers front man Matty Taylor, while they are set to complete the signing of Kazenga LuaLua on loan from promotion chasing Brighton for the rest of the season.
They also remain interested in signing Luke Freeman from Bristol City, despite having an initial bid turned down.
