Ferdinand confirms QPR are ready to sell Luongo

QPR: Les Ferdinand

Les Ferdinand has confirmed that QPR are ready to sell Massimo Luongo.

West London Sport revealed this week that Rangers were set to offload Matt Ingram to Hull, who have since signed him, that a £4m offer from Sheffield United for Luke Freeman has been rejected despite reports he was close to a £3m move, that an offer from Millwall for Matt Smith has been turned down but talks between the two clubs are ongoing, and that the R’s are ready to sell Luongo.

It has since been claimed that Leeds and Nottingham Forest are interested in the Australia midfielder.

Luongo is about to enter the final year of his contract at Loftus Road and QPR’s revised wage structure means there is little prospect of him signing a new deal, so they are looking to sell him this summer.

“He’s relatively young and has the opportunity to push on,” Rangers director of football Ferdinand told Australian publication The World Game.

“He has a year left with us but if he does go this summer he might be able to kick on a little bit more elsewhere.

“There has been a bit of interest for Massimo. We are a club that if the right offer comes in for one of our players – especially with the FFP situation – we have to look at everything.”

Meanwhile, QPR manager Mark Warburton is hoping to finalise the loan signings of at least two youngsters on loan from Premier League clubs.
