Queens Park Rangers are in the midst of a rebuilding process by manager Ian Holloway as he prepares the west London outfit to climb up the table next season and push the division’s big boys.
Loftus Road was a shallow stadium to play in last season as fears of a relegation scrap grew but a late run of form meant they escaped any end-of-campaign scares that third-tier football may be looming.
The club are yet to get their summer recruitment going, but could start by swooping for current free agent Zeki Fryers, who has recently been let go by Premier League side Crystal Palace following his failure to break the first-team barrier.
The 24-year-old left-back began his career at Manchester United, only making two appearances for the Red Devils, prior to moving abroad to Belgium and then getting snapped up by Tottenham Hotspur.
Fryers has got some Football League experience to offer to QPR having spent loan stints at Rotherham United and Ipswich Town in the 2014/15 season – linking up with team-mate Jonny Williams at the latter.
Holloway may have Jake Robinson and Jack Bidwell at his disposal in the left-back position, who both have potential, but there is always room for improving and that can easily be done by acquiring Zeki Fryers.
The positive alongside that as well is the fact he doesn’t cost a penny because his contract is expiring at Selhurst Park, and Loftus Road is only across the city so it means the defender wouldn’t have to relocate; allowing him to settle in and really kick start his career.
