Queens Park Rangers striker Idrissa Sylla is likely to leave Loftus Road with a medical planned today at Zulte Waregem, according to HLN.
The 28-year-old has been out of favour since the arrival of Steve McClaren as manager and has seemingly been on a collision course with a departure since the start of the season.
He’s started just one game since the former England manager arrived and hasn’t been seen on the pitch since late August. With Tomer Hemed and Nahki Wells in fine form, Sylla has dropped out of sight and won’t be seen again by Hoops’ fans.
Sylla arrived from Belgium side Anderlecht for an undisclosed fee, but has not settled in West London, making just 28 starts in the league since August 2016. He’s appeared from the bench a further 33 times, taking his total appearances tally to 65 in all competitions.
In that time he’s bagged 17 goals, the last of which came against Brentford in April.
He has a medical with his former club Zulte Waregem today and is expected to finalise the move imminently.
No surprises here at all, Sylla is not in McClaren’s plans and hasn’t ever settled properly at QPR. He was used sparingly by Ian Holloway too, which has led to him stagnating in London.
A move home is best all round and it frees up some wages for McClaren to make moves this transfer window.
