New Queens Park Rangers boss eyeing new signings in the summer
Mark Warburton is expected to have a busy summer transfer window following his recent appointment as the Queens Park Rangers manager.
Warburton will preside over a challenging job at Rangers, who have reportedly released five out-of-contract players and are hampered by Financial Fair Play rules.
Speaking at a media press conference on Wednesday morning, Warburton told journalists that he was looking to bring in both and experienced and young players to the squad in the summer.
“We’ll be active. We’ll be looking at players, young and old,” he said.
“In terms of experience, we have to have maturity, seniority, and experience of this really tough division, but at the same time, you want youth, energy, hunger, and desire as well. If we can get that balance right we’re in a good place.
“Every club will be vying for the same, but there are some good players out there – some of them young who would benefit from coming to a club like QPR, and some good senior names who can add their maturity and game knowledge to what is a young squad of players.”
Warburton further reiterated that he was aware of the current financial restrictions but hopes he will be able to get the job done.
He said: “The club has had problems in recent years – well documented -and the job of the owners is to make sure the club is on a sound financial footing. I know exactly what we can and can’t do.
“The clarity is there for me, now hopefully we can go and do a job.”
