Queens Park Rangers have confirmed five senior players will leave the club this summer when their contracts expire.
Alex Baptiste, Jake Bidwell, Jordan Cousins, Joel Lynch and Pawel Wszolek have all played their final games for the R’s, with the news that they will be released revealed on the club site this afternoon.
It’s going to be a very busy summer for the London outfit, with Mark Warburton the new boss and he has started the rebuild already.
In the case of Baptiste it was no surprise, however the other four players made 141 appearances between them in the league last season.
Therefore, that was a surprise and it’s fair to say the decision to move Polish winger Wszolek on is the call that’s upset the supporters the most.
The 27-year-old scored four goals and made four in the previous campaign but impressed with his ability on the ball and his pace.
However, he, along with his teammates, will be on the lookout for a new club ahead of next season.
Here’s some of the reaction from supporters to the big decisions made…
Very poor to let Pav go.. he puts in a tight shift! Maybe he wasn’t willing to be paid less…

Should have tried harder to keep Pawel

Right decision, the rebuild starts now

Wszolek? Seriously? ????????♂️
Shame about Cousins, but probably makes sense for both parties. No arguments with the other three.

Only two I would have kept: Pawel and Cousins.
Cousins has improved a lot this season. But maybe hasn't done enough overall. Pawel is decent when he gets a good run.
What often alarms me about QPR is that we seem to get rid of or let players go without adequate backup.

Letting Pav go… think this could end up being regretted!
