QPR make enormous losses

QPR have been revealed as the biggest losers in English football with annual figures disclosing a wage bill higher than Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund and bigger losses than Manchester City.

QPR lost £65.4million last season, when the club was relegated from the Premier League, while their debt almost doubled to £177million after the club.

No other club in English football lost more money last season - City reported losses of £51million and Chelsea of £49.4million. But while both the top-flight clubs have had impressive increases in turnover, QPR's fell to a meager £60.6million.

Queens Park Rangers football club have unveiled their plans to build a 40,000 seat stadium at Old Oak Common.

The club says discussions with local councils and the Mayor's office have been ongoing, linking the project with plans for thousands of new homes and a station for the new Crossrail line.

New players make QPR squad

QPR manager Harry Rednapp has revealed the club's two new players, Tom Carroll and Matt Phillips, will be part of tomorrow's squad taking on Birmingham. The other two last-minute signings, Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Niko Kranjcar, will still be sidelined as they recover from injuries.

Redknapp did however hint he'd be happy to take Emmanuel Adebayor onboard, if Spurs would loan him out.

QPR have launched a bid to sign Tottenham's Tom Carroll and Benoit Assou-Ekotto on loan, according to reports from Press Association Sport.

Left-back Assou-Ekotto is out of favour at Tottenham and is yet to feature in any of the club's games so far this season.

Carroll, meanwhile, has seen his first-team opportunities diminish following the £100 million spending spree that has seen midfielders Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Etienne Capoue and Paulinho arrive at White Hart Lane.

Redknapp has also been linked with a move for Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor, but it is understood that the west London club have not made a bid for the Togo striker due to his huge wages.

Anton Ferdinand leaves QPR

Anton Ferdinand has left QPR.

The club said the move was arranged by mutual consent, leaving the 28-year-old defender a free agent.

Ferdinand had spent the second half of last season on loan at Turkish club Bursaspor.

The club said it would like to thank him for his contribution and wish him all the best for the future.
