After just one season in the Premier League, Queens Park Rangers have been relegated back down to the Championship, and will have to do so with many new faces in the squad.
While they will be offering new contracts to defender Clint Hill, 36, and midfielder Alejandro Faurlin, 32, the team has decided to part ways with six of their more established players, most notably defender Rio Ferdinand, 36, and midfielder Joey Barton, 32.
Along with them, Richard Dunne, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Bobby Zamora and Brian Murphy will also all be looking for new teams this coming season.
As a team that has struggled to get promoted and stay in the Premier League in recent years, QPR are looking to cut ties with their ageing players in order to bring in some young talent.
Alongside the on-field problems, QPR face a £58 million fine from the Football League regarding its Financial Fair Play Rules, and a failure to pay this could see the club refused entry into the Championship.
