Report: QPR defender Armand Traore in talks with Turkish club Kayserispor regarding move

The former Arsenal trainee looks set to leave the club this summer.

QPR left-back Armand Traore looks set to leave the club this summer, with Turkey his apparent destination.

According to a report in Tutto Mercato Web the Frenchman is set to leave London for a new career with Turkish outfit Kayserispor this summer.

They claim the deal will be permanent as Chris Ramsay does not see the former Arsenal youngster in his plans for next season.

He would join the likes of Adel Taarabt, Bobby Zamora and Shaun Wright-Phillips in leaving the club this summer after being deemed surplus to requirements.

Undoubtedly talented, Traore has often had the lazy tag thrown in his direction, and has never been consistent in a QPR shirt.

Ramsay is trying to change the ethos around the club this summer, with players like Ben Gladwin, Massimo Luongo and Sebastian Polter signing – rather than big names who provide little impact.

If Traore, who was linked with a move to Lille by Goal earlier this month, was to head to Turkey he would be playing for a team that was only promoted back to the Turkish Super Lig last season.
