Queens Park Rangers are set to be very active in the summer transfer window.
QPR are set to make a number of changes to their squad, following relegation to the Championship, and they are looking to complete their dealings quickly.
The R's have already brought in Massimo Luongo and Ben Gladwin from Swindon Town, and Ferdinand says their arrival is a signal of the R's intent.
"We’re trying to get business done early," he said to the R's official site. “We’ve lost a lot of players – those who are out of contract and those whose loans are up – so we want to get a head-start in the market if we can.
“This is a signal of our intent, because these two lads were in great demand from a lot of clubs, including a couple from the Premier League."
There will be a large amount of comings and goings at Loftus Road this summer, it would seem, with Chris Ramsey preparing to overhaul his squad.
The R's struggled last season, with a number of areas clearly in need of improvement, and Ramsey will need to bring in some additions to cover for these deficiencies.
Doing so without being able to offer top-level football could be difficult, but QPR are hoping to complete their business before other sides have had a chance to gauge the market.
Ramsey is said to be targeting young and hungry players, with more deals seemingly set to be announced in the near future, if all goes to plan.
