QPR must axe amazing 26 players due to finances

QPR must shed an incredible 26 players this summer after announcing massive losses since last season's relegation.

The Daily Mail says more than 20 players - including high-earners Shaun Wright-Phillips, Jermaine Jenas, Robert Green, Aaron Hughes, Richard Dunne and Bobby Zamora - will see their contracts or loan periods expire this summer.

Those contracted to the club will be released or offered new contracts on significantly reduced terms.

QPR will also look for permanent buyers for Remy, Adel Taarabt, Stephane Mbia, Esteban Granero, Samba Diakite and Cesar, all of whom are out on loan.

The club have reported a net debt of £177m, up from £91.4m the previous year. Turnover dropped from £64m to £60.6m but wage costs soared from £58.5m to £78m as staff numbers increased from 130 to 164.
