Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink issues challenge to his Queens Park Rangers players

Queens Park Rangers are expected to make a number of changes in the summer transfer window.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has hinted that Queens Park Rangers could make a number of changes in the summer transfer window, during his interview with Radio Yorkshire after his side’s match against Leeds United.

QPR could only pick up a 1-1 draw at Elland Road yesterday evening, which surely puts to an end any hopes that they had of making the play offs.

It was put to Hasselbaink that the pressure could be off for his side between now and the end of the campaign.

However, the 44-year-old refused to reflect on the situation like that, as he says that a number of his first-team squad are now playing for their futures at Loftus Road.

"We always put a pressure on ourselves. It’s how you have to play. There’s an expectation," he said. 

"And there’s still a lot of boys who are playing for their futures. It’s important for them that they deliver and do the job."

QPR have nine players with their contracts expiring in the summer, and it is expected that wholesale changes could be made.

Hasselbaink has already expressed a desire to create a British core to his squad at Loftus Road, which he wants to be packed with young talent.

Hasselbaink has made three signings at QPR so far - after he brought in Abdenasser El Khayati, Matt Ingram and Conor Washington during the January transfer window.
