Duo set for QPR exits

Lee Cook and Martin Rowlands look set to leave QPR after the pair were not handed squad numbers for the upcoming Barclays Premier League campaign.

There have been doubts over the duo's future this summer after they failed to make a pre-season friendly appearance, as well as the squads that toured Cornwall and Italy.

Leon Clarke, Gary Borrowdale and Antonio German also failed to make manager Neil Warnock's list and are expected to head for the exit door.

Summer signing Jay Bothroyd was handed the number 10 jersey, while fellow newboys Danny Gabbidon and Kieron Dyer were given six and eight respectively.

Talisman Adel Taarabt retains the number seven shirt, while an article on the club's website highlighted the fact number nine shirt still remains vacant.

Speculation suggests that Blackpool striker DJ Campbell will take the number if he completes his move to the Shepherds Bush club this week.

QPR announced last week that the Tangerines had accepted a bid for the striker, reportedly of £1.25million.
