QPR could consider selling goalkeeper Alex Smithies if an offer meets their valuation of the player, according to Football.London.

Like many clubs in the Championship, Rangers need to keep in the line with Financial Fair Play regulations and it is believed that selling their current number one could be on the cards.

The 28-year-old has been linked with a move to us in recent days with journalist Alan Nixon suggesting on Twitter that we will make a move for him as a replacement for David Stockdale.

Smithies was a regular in QPR’s first team last season, but he was dropped from the starting eleven for the final four league games of the season with Matt Ingram and Joe Lumley both being given opportunities.

Football.London report that the goalkeeper is still regarded as the “most important member” of the squad and the stopper would only consider a Premier League side or a team fighting for promotion.

However, it seems QPR’s FFP worries could lead them to cash in. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.

  • This article is particularly interesting to me.Not just about the goalkeeper but the reference to FFP.As many will have noticed over the weeks I have been irritated by scaremongering by certain sporting reports that BCFC was in real danger of both heavy fines and even points reduction. All stories without foundation 100%. Much bigger clubs in the Championship have contravened the FFP ruling and await possible sanctions.We are not in that category.However,my real point is that out of all the current clubs in the Championship,the two clubs who have nowhere near fallen foul of any such contravention of FFB because of their meagre spending are Cardiff and Fulham. Surely lessons to be learned here.

  • He will not go to brum, QPR fans rate him as the best in the championship with a price tag of 10 million.
    This Will never happen. QPR have already let go makie, onuoha, Robinson, perch, and Washington is on his way as well
    If sold will go premier league

  • Did you mean to type £1.2m? What will be will be. No chance you’ll be getting any more than £3m. Not sure what QPRs FFP situation is like but I can’t see us paying big money or we too will fall foul of FFP.
