Caulker leaves QPR by mutual consent

QPR: Steven Caulker

Steven Caulker has left QPR by mutual consent.

Caulker, whose contract was due to expire in the summer, moved to Loftus Road from Cardiff City for £8m in 2014.

The 25-year-old defender made just 54 appearances for Rangers, with four of them coming this season, the last of which was against Barnsley in September.

He is one of a number of players Rangers have been keen to offload in order to create room in their budget for signings during the January transfer window.
