It’s a new era for Queens Park Rangers with Mark Warburton appointed as their new manager and he will expect to have a busy summer.
As well as showing those players the door, several loan players have returned to their parent clubs.
One of those is the versatile Geoff Cameron who joined on loan from Stoke City and bringing him back to west London has to be a priority for Warburton as he looks to shape his squad.
Firstly, the American will provide some much-needed experience to the R’s squad that is packed with younger talent on the whole.
Whilst that’s the right approach to have, the reality is that you need some older figures to guide the youngsters through the tougher times in a league like the Championship.
He has been there, done it and has a lot of top-level experience which can be passed on to his teammates.
As well as that, Cameron is versatile and that’s another massive bonus for a side like QPR who won’t be able to splash the cash on quality options and depth in each position.
Capable of playing across the back four and as a defensive midfielder, that will be extremely useful in such a demanding league.
However, most importantly, you have to say that Cameron is still a very good player and would add a lot to the team.
His influence on the R’s was clear to see in the campaign and it’s no surprise that their disastrous run of form earlier this year, that resulted in Steve McClaren’s dismissal, came when the 33-year-old was out through injury.
Ultimately, there’s going to be a lot of change at QPR over the next few months and Warburton will be wanting to put his influence on the side, but one positive step would be going back and ensuring Cameron returns to Loftus Road.
