Clint Hill has paid tribute to Jamie Mackie after the winger's Queens Park Rangers release was confirmed on Friday.

R's boss Ian Holloway announced via the club's website that Mackie - who is in his second spell at Loftus Road - will leave when his contract expires at the end of the campaign, alongside James Perch and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.

And Hill - a teammate of Mackie on two occasions - posted on Twitter shortly afterwards:

 

Defensive duo Nedum Onuoha and Jack Robinson could yet follow Mackie, Perch and Emmanuel-Thomas out of QPR, although the R's are in discussions with both players.

Onuoha was linked with a move to Burnley earlier this year, while Robinson is said to be a target for Sheffield United.

Meanwhile, The World Game reports that QPR midfielder Massimo Luongo is attracting interest from Malaga, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa.

However, the Australian - who has scored or made nine league goals this season - still has two years left on his Loftus Road deal.
