QPR boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink admitted he faces a busy summer after his team ended their campaign with a 1-0 victory at home to Bristol City.
Karl Henry, who curled home a second-half winner at Loftus Road, is one of several Rangers players whose contracts are about to expire.
The likes of Junior Hoilett, Alejandro Faurlin and veteran defender Clint Hill are also coming to the end of their current deals, and Hasselbaink expects major changes to be made before next season.
“Obviously there is more work to be done. We all know we are in transition,” said the Dutchman, whose team finished 12th in the Sky Bet Championship table.
“We’ve got some good characters here at the club and we have a base. We now want to work from that base.
“There are going to be some changes at this club, but we also have to understand that it’s not going to be about only throwing money at it.
“It’s about getting the right mentality and that platform, and having it right throughout the club.
“We want to make sure that we are all going in the same direction and are a good team, not just individuals.”
The former Chelsea striker added: “Style is always something we want to play with, but it has to be possible - you are not going to win every game in style.
“Sometimes you have to dig in and battle, but we want to play with a style where we pass the ball and create chances.”
