Queens Park Rangers are willing to listen to offers for three of their fringe players in January, according to the Daily Star (28th September, page 51).

The newspaper claims Matt Smith, Idrissa Sylla and Osman Kakay are all up for grabs from the R's.


The trio have made just six league starts between them this season - with Alex Baptiste, Tomer Hemed and Nahki Wells largely favoured instead - while Smith is the only one to have appeared in the competition since September's break for internationals.

Unlike the 29-year-old, whose deal runs until 2020, Sylla and Kakay are each out of contract at the end of the campaign.

QPR have struggled financially in recent years, and selling the trio would help to generate vital funds - although none of the money raised could be spent on January recruits due to a transfer embargo imposed at Loftus Road.
