Defender sees four-year stint with Rs come to an end
Jack Robinson has left Queens Park Rangers after the defender turned down the Championship club’s offer of a new contract.
The 24-year-old arrived at Loftus Road in 2014 after joining the Rs from Liverpool, having progressed through the Reds academy.
Throughout his four years with the west Londoners, the defender was plagued by injuries, though last season was by far his most influential campaign.
Though a left-back by trade, Robinson played most of his football last term in the middle of defence and made 34 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals.
Robinson’s contract officially expires at the end of June, but having turned down a new deal with the club, the 24-year-old has left QPR with immediate effect.
“We made Jack a very attractive offer, but he decided to turn it down and take his chances in the market,” QPR director of football Les Ferdinand told the club website.
“We thank Jack for his efforts during his time with us and wish him every success in the future.
“The club’s philosophy with regards to signing players and retaining players has changed in recent years, and that is vital for our sustainability going forward.”
