Wright-Phillips poser for QPR

Queens Park Rangers are struggling to move Shaun Wright-Phillips off their books as few clubs outside of the top flight can afford him.

Shaun Wright-Phillips: On the fringes of things at Loftus Road

Shaun Wright-Phillips: On the fringes of things at Loftus Road

The experienced winger was among those drafted in to Loftus Road as an apparent statement of intent as they looked to preserve their Premier League status.

He was, however, to become one of a number of high-profile performers to flop badly as the capital outfit tumbled into the second tier.

Wright-Phillips remains part of the set-up at QPR following relegation, but the 32-year-old has been restricted to just 11 outings this season.

Harry Redknapp would prefer to move the England international out if at all possible, as he remains one of the club's high earners, but the QPR boss concedes that he may find it difficult to find a club willing to finance a deal.

He said in the Fulham Chronicle: "It's difficult. It's only Premier League clubs who could afford to take him on his wages.

"Other clubs aren't going to put up that type of money. There isn't big money in this league wages-wise.

"If any of them want to take a thousand-per-cent drop in wages or something, they can, but you don't see too many doing that."
