Queens Park Rangers midfielder Esteban Granero's agent has confirmed that the midfielder will be leaving the club in the summer after their relegation from the Premier League to the Championship.

QPR have suffered a torrid season and were relegated from the Premier League after drawing 0-0 to Reading back in late April and it is expected that several of their high-earners will be leaving the club.

The likes of Julio Cesar, Loic Remy and Christopher Samba are all likely to be on their way out of Loftus Road as the club look to cut their high wage-bill. Granero is now set to be the next big name departure.

Today it was announced by the player's agent that Granero will in-fact be leaving Queens Park Ranger despite signing a four-year deal back in August after signing from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Granero's agent, Teo Lazaro confirmed that the club were looking at trimming down their wage-bill by selling some of their top-earners and he confirmed that his client will be one of those leaving.

Talking to a Russian newspaper, Lazaro stated that he will be looking for a new club for his 25-year-old client.

"QPR will have to part ways with a number of highly paid players following their relegation from the Premier League," he told Izvestia.

"Among those players listed is the name of my client. Basically, we have to find a new club."
