QPR want rid of JET after El Khayati’s exit

Nasser El Khayati has left QPR and the club are also looking to get rid of Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.

El Khayati’s contract has been terminated by mutual consent – 18 months after his move from Burton.

He made 25 appearances for the R’s, scoring one goal, and ended last season in his native Netherlands, on loan at ADO Den Haag.

Emmanuel-Thomas, who joined QPR in 2015, spent last season on loan at Gillingham and has long been out of favour at Loftus Road.

Meanwhile, Rangers manager Ian Holloway has defended his decision to make 10 changes for Tuesday’s cup defeat against Brentford.
