Mackie hands in transfer request

QPR forward Jamie Mackie has submitted a transfer request, ITV Football understands.

Mackie was deemed surplus to requirements last season as Rangers were relegated from the Premier League and his situation at Loftus Road shows little sign of improvement.

With Redknapp linked with moves for Andros Townsend, Charlie Austin and Gary Hooper - who now looks set for Norwich - Mackie has informed the west London club that he wants to leave.
