thumbnail Hello,

A board member has publicised the move to offload a selection of first-teamers and reserves to allow them to gain further experience and expand football in the country

QPR director Kamarudin Bin Meranun has revealed that the club are looking to loan out a number of their fringe players to play in Malaysia for the 2012-13 season.

The Rs, who narrowly avoided relegation from the Premier League on the final day of last term, are currently in the country on a pre-season tour as boss Mark Hughes looks to prepare his troops for the upcoming campaign.

With the west London club hoping to seal further new arrivals before the new campaign kicks off on August 18 and the additions of, among others, Rob Green, Andrew Johnson and Ji-Sung Park already secured, Bin Meranun is now looking to use the fringe players as a platform to expand the game in Malaysia.

"We have more plans for Malaysia and Malaysian football. We are open to discussions and ready to share our knowledge and expertise with local football clubs here,” he told reporters in Malaysia.

"We have talked to a few local clubs here to share our ideas and experiences. We also plan to send our reserve or youth players to play in the local leagues.”
