Report: Three QPR first-teamers, including Stephen Caulker, set to leave this summer

Charlie Austin, Stephen Caulker and Robert Green are all reportedly set to leave Queens Park Rangers this summer.

Queens Park Rangers boss Chris Ramsey is preparing to sell three key players as he looks to raise funds for incoming additions, according to the Daily Star.

QPR want to make wholesale changes to their squad this summer and Ramsey is prepared to cash-in on some of their more high-profile stars to ensure that they have the money required to bring in some much-needed quality.

The likes of Charlie Austin, Stephen Caulker and Robert Green will all be sold this summer, say the Star, as Ramsey looks to shake things up.

The QPR boss wants to freshen up his squad and bring in youthful players who have a point to prove, rather than sign ageing veterans.

Doing so is never cheap, but the R's believe that the sales of Austin, Caulker and Green will give them the funds that are required to renovate their ranks.

By losing Austin, Caulker and Green, QPR will be sacrificing arguably their three best players, but it may be a necessary move to make them competitive in the Championship.

The trio are all too good to be playing in the second-tier and Ramsey has obviously realised that keeping them against their wishes would not be of benefit to anyone involved.
