Jamie Mackie: Set to leave Queens Park Rangers

Jamie Mackie: Set to leave Queens Park Rangers

The Scotland international was linked with Championship counterparts Nottingham Forest earlier this week.

Mackie is under contract with Rangers for another two years and the club is thought to have accepted a £1.5m offer from Forest.

QPR boss Harry Redknapp is on the lookout for a new striker, although his attempts to lure Gary Hooper from Celtic appear to have failed - with Norwich City now expected to sign the Englishman.

An R's statement read: "Jamie Mackie has today (Thursday) submitted a transfer request, which the club have reluctantly accepted.

"The 27-year-old has informed the club of his desire to leave, having found first-team opportunities limited at Loftus Road in the last six months.

"As previously stated, no player will leave QPR unless the club's valuation is met.

"The club will be making no further comment at this time."

Mackie has made 94 competitive appearances for the Championship club, scoring 18 times since moving from Plymouth Argyle for £145,000 in May 2010.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
