QPR looking for new home

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has revealed the club are evaluating three potential sites for a new stadium.

The Malaysian businessman completed his takeover at Loftus Road less than a year ago and has been quick to try and bring both the playing squad and facilities up to Premier League standard.

"We're working this week [on the stadium]," Fernandes told Press Association Sport. "I am getting a full report on one of the pieces of ground. I think we have three potential choices and we are going to evaluate it and then take it to the shareholders."

He added: "It has actually not even been a year that we have owned this club and I am very pleased with the kind of progress we have made in one year.

"If we can continue at this kind of pace, then things should look good at QPR."

As well as new facilities, things are looking promising for the Hoops on the field as they look to push on from last season, where they narrowly avoided relegation on the last day of the season.

Ryan Nelsen, Andrew Johnson, Robert Green, Samba Diakite and Fabio da Silva have already joined the west Londoners this summer and more additions are likely before the end of the window.

"We have a great manager [in Mark Hughes] and we have made some good signings already in a very quick period," Fernandes said.

"We have a bit more work to do but things are moving in the right direction."

"We're rebuilding so obviously [we're active]. There may be three or four more, we'll have to wait and see. I am guessing, though."
