Three Burton Albion players Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink could sign for Queens Park Rangers

Queens Park Rangers are reportedly set to confirm Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink as their new manager in the coming days.

With Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink set to be named as Queens Park Rangers boss before the weekend, according to BBC Sport, we take a look at three Burton Albion players he could look to take with him to Queens Park Rangers.

Matt Palmer

Palmer has already racked up over 100 first team appearances for Burton, despite only being 20 years of age.

The central midfielder has dazzled with his passing ability and creativity, and he has been a key cog in Burton’s recent success.

The youngster played a big role in getting the Brewers promoted from League Two last season, and he has proved to be capable of making an impression at League One level, too.

He would bring composure and skill to QPR’s midfield ranks.

Abdenasser El Khayati

El Khayati has been Burton’s main goal threat so far this season, and he has scored eight times in 20 matches.

With QPR having a lack of cover for Charlie Austin up front, Hasselbaink may look to add a striker in January.

He knows El Khayati’s talents, and it seems that the Dutchman would have a chance of coping at Championship level.

Jerome Binnon-Williams

Although Binnon-Williams is only on loan at Burton from Crystal Palace, Hasselbaink is a big admirer of the defender.

The 20-year-old has played in the bulk of the Brewers fixtures this term, and he has looked highly impressive at the back.

Binnon-Williams has proven to be a robust defender, and he has coped with every challenge thrown at him so far.

With QPR having more financial muscle than Burton, Hasselbaink could try and force through a permanent deal with Palace in January.
