QPR will be forced back into the transfer market in January due to the African Nations Cup.

Adel Taarabt quit international football earlier this year after falling out with Morocco manager Eric Gerets.

But the former Belgium defender handed him a recall for the forthcoming clash against Tanzania and if the forward decides to call an end to his international exile then Warnock would be without him for the duration of January's Africa Cup of Nations.

Rs boss Neil Warnock is already resigned to losing Senegal full back Armand Traore to the tournament.
