Leroy Fer set for Queens Park Rangers stay

Queens Park Rangers are set to offload many of their high earners in the January transfer window.

Leroy Fer has revealed to the Kilburn Times that Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink wants to keep him at Queens Park Rangers.

Fer was close to leaving QPR in the summer transfer window, and there have been suggestions that he could leave in the coming weeks.

However, the Dutchman insists that he is happy at Loftus Road and that Hasselbaink sees him as part of his future plans.

“The gaffer has told me he doesn’t want to let me go," Fer said. "Of course I respect what he says and accept that because I am a QPR player.

“It’s not like I’m not enjoying my time here either – because I am. I’m not looking to push for a move away. I’ve been told I’m wanted at the club so that’s enough for me.”

QPR appear to be planning for the future, with many of their top earners being offloaded.

Charlie Austin has already left Rangers to join Southampton, while it seems that Matt Phillips could be about to follow him out the exit door - with Middlesbrough launching a £6 million bid, according to Sky Sports.

Fer is also one of the best paid players at Loftus Road, but it seems that he is set to stay for the long term.

The former Norwich City man has played 17 matches for the R’s this season, and he has scored on two occasions.
