QPR have confirmed that Alejandro Faurlin and Clint Hill are among the players leaving the club this summer.
West London Sport revealed on Monday morning that manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink had indicated that out-of-contract trio Faurlin, Hill and Karl Henry were not in his plans, while Junior Hoilett has told the club he wants to leave.
Faurlin later confirmed his departure with a message on social media in which he thanked fans for their support.
