Taarabt given the greenlight to leave QPR

QPR manager Neil Warnock has stated that he will sell Adel Taarabt in January if the player wants to leave, as he does not want unhappy players at his club.

The former Spurs midfielder has spoken of his desire to leave Loftus Road to get paid better wages, and left Craven Cottage at half time after being substituted in the London outfit’s 6-0 defeat.

Despite the Morocco international’s obvious quality, Warnock will not block a move if it is requested.

“My message is the same to every player at the club – not just Adel. If a player wants to leave, he can leave. I have never had a problem with that,” he told Mirror Football.

“But all the talk about the offers we had, I never saw an allegedly massive offer from PSG. I know what they offered, and by the time we had paid Tottenham, we would have been left with peanuts.

“It is in his court, really. If he wants to get the move that he has allegedly talked about, the best way of doing that is playing well.

“I think he’s got the ability to play anywhere. His ability’s not in question,” he stated.

QPR host Blackburn on Saturday in the Premier League, and will look to make amends for their heavy defeat against Fulham from their last outing.
