It’s been a tough season for Sunderland and former manager David Moyes, who has walked away from the Black Cats after just one season in the North East.
One player that has also been shown the door following their relegation is Premier League veteran Steven Pienaar, who’s one year stint at the club hasn’t been extended following their relegation.
The former Spurs and Everton attacker featured just 14 times as Moyes struggled to guide his side away from the Premier League drop-zone all season.
But moving forward, he’s a player that despite being 35-years-old, still has plenty to give at this level when he’s fully fit.
And one team we at the FLW think should be monitoring his situation are Ian Holloway’s QPR.
The Hoops will be looking to build on a pretty disappointing 18th-placed finish in the Championship last time out, but with a full summer and pre-season to bring in the players he needs, there’s thought amongst Hoops fans that this season should be a lot more promising.
The signing of Pienaar would certainly bring that element of experience to the QPR squad that perhaps isn’t there at the moment, and you can imagine that if wages could be agreed, Pienaar could do a real job on the wing.
He’s creative, has excellent delivery and also gets on the scoresheet when given the opportunity.
The argument surrounding his age might be the biggest negative in any potential move for the South African international, but you’ve only got to look at his stats to prove that he’s still a quality player that has juice left in his legs.
