West London latest: Defender signs new QPR deal, Fulham's Davidson move off?


A selection of the latest stories surrounding Queens Park Rangers and Fulham.


Armand Traore has signed a new deal with QPR, after his previous contract expired this summer.

The 24-year-old left-back was a regular starter for Harry Redknapp's side last season, as they earned promotion from the Championship via the play-offs.

"Next season is an extremely important one for me, added to the fact we’re back in the Premier League," Traore is quoted as saying by the club's official twitter account.

And there has been a bout of even more good news for the Rs back line, with various sources reporting that Rio Ferdinand and Steven Caulker are set to join the club.

Redknapp yesterday confirmed that 36-year-old Ferdinand should be on his way to Loftus Road, while he also stated that the club have agreed a fee with Cardiff City for Caulker.

However, Sky Sports have this morning reported that Nottingham Forest have rejected a bid for defender Jamaal Lascelles, meaning QPR will likely have to up their £4 million valuation of the 20-year-old.


According to the Daily Mirror, Fulham have cut 29 jobs in a bid to reduce costs as they aim to bounce back to the Premier League.

The cuts are reportedly being made in a drive to fund a £10m move for Leeds United striker Ross McCormack, with Kostas Mitroglou, who signed in January for £12m, also not being sold as of yet.

Meanwhile, the Cottagers' move for Australian left-back Jason Davidson could be off after his club Heracles claimed to have triggered an automatic extension to his contract.

Fulham are said to be interested in bringing the 23-year-old to west London to join fellow Ozzie Adam Taggart. However, the news has put the move in doubt.

Elsewhere, Fulham have announced that their new home kit has attained a record number of online sales after being released on Tuesday.
