Ian Holloway will be hoping for a busy end to January but is well aware that the clubs financial situation means players will have to go out before any come in.
The R’s have had a tough season so far, although there have been some memorable moments. They have defeated leaders Wolves and high-flying Cardiff and Sheffield United at Loftus Road in the past few months.
However, even a crucial 3-1 win at Burton earlier in the month won’t have convinced fans that they are set for another season in the second tier, although new faces arriving would help.
As mentioned though, Holloway is going to have to wheel and deal in the coming days and that means shipping a few players out.
Here we look at two who could depart the Londoners before the deadline shuts.
