LATEST UPDATE : The 5 QPR players likely to never play for the club again

We look at five QPR players who are likely to have played their final game with the club. Queens Park Rangers secured their Championship safety with a dramatic 4-0 victory over Leeds United last Friday.

It was a remarkable night for the R’s, highlighting Marti Cifuentes’ outstanding efforts since being named Gareth Ainsworth’s successor in October.

The Spaniard inherited a club in disarray, with the team in the relegation zone and six points from safety, while the fans had rightly grown disillusioned with the regime.

Yet, Cifuentes has managed to get everyone moving in the same direction, as his teaching ability enhanced people, and there is a sense of cohesion around the team

That had been absent. Now the focus will shift to next season, and there is genuine anticipation and excitement at Loftus Road about what the future may hold under the ex-Hammarby manager.

However, there is still a lot of hard work to be done this summer, as QPR aren’t exactly in a position to splurge the cash, and there are concerns about the future of several important team members.

Here, we look at FIVE players that could be transferred out, indicating they have played their final game in the blue and white hoops…

Asmir Begovic

Asmir Begovic, an experienced goalkeeper, hasn’t always impressed this season, but his leadership and some vital stops have helped keep the R’s in the second division.

However, with his contract ending, this appears to be the appropriate time for an exit, freeing up room in the team and pay for Cifuentes to bring in his own goalkeeper.

The style of play may change next season, and having a number one who is better on the ball could help. Furthermore, Begovic is not a long-term option at 36, so QPR may now sign someone who will be in place for the foreseeable future.

Osman Kakay

Right-back Osman Kakay is also out of contract in the summer, and he is almost certain to go after falling out of favor with Cifuentes.

The academy graduate, who has been with the R’s since he was a kid, hasn’t played since Boxing Day, and it’s revealing that the manager has put Jimmy Dunne, a centre-back by trade, in that role while Reggie Cannon sits on the bench.

Kakay hasn’t even made the bench in recent months, so he’ll be looking for a fresh start elsewhere as he seeks to advance his career, and an exit would appear to benefit all sides.

Chris Willock

This is not something QPR wants to happen, but Chris Willock’s contract expires in the summer. As a result, the winger’s next move is totally up to him, and Sunderland is said to be tracking him.

The R’s may try to work out a new contract with Willock, but he will be an appealing free agent option for many clubs, and he may receive better financial offers elsewhere.

So it’s worth keeping an eye on, and Willock will have an important decision to make in the coming weeks.

Albert Adomah

Albert Adomah is also out of contract, and from a football standpoint, it makes perfect sense for the 36-year-old to leave, since he has struggled for minutes and is no longer the offensive threat he once was.

Nonetheless, it will be a pity for everyone associated to the R’s if Adomah leaves, as he is a longtime QPR fan, and you can tell what pulling on the shirt has meant to him over the last four years.

What happens next in Adomah’s career remains to be known, but he will be proud to have had the opportunity to play for a club so dear to his heart.

Lyndon Dykes

Lyndon Dykes QPR

Lyndon Dykes, unlike the other players on the list, is not out of contract in the summer, but there is still a potential he will transfer.

The target man has done well for QPR in recent games, but he has not been prolific this season, and his performances have been erratic.

You would expect that bringing in a new number nine is a priority for Cifuentes this summer, thus Dykes may want to change because he is no longer a regular.

A successful Euro 2024 campaign with Scotland might boost Dykes’ profile, and he may fetch a reasonable fee that Cifuentes can reinvest in the team.
