QPR's 'DJ' striker rejected by Montpellier

Djibril Cisse is just one of many players that Queens Park Rangers are desperate to offload this summer - as they attempt to lower their enormous wage bill. 

The Frenchman spent the second half of the season on loan at Al-Gharafa from Qatar because Harry Redknapp decided he wasn't a part of his plans. 

Cisse became surplus to requirements after Redknapp signed Loic Remy and despite QPR's relegation, Cisse's future is thought to lie away from the west London club.

After rumours linking him with 2011/2012 Ligue 1 champions Montpellier, it was thought QPR may be able to get rid of him. 

However, Monpellier chairman Louis Nicollin was quick to laugh off the reports, telling regional French newspaper Midi Libre: "Cisse? No, it is out of the question. I don’t want a guy who plays DJ in bars.

"It will not be Cisse or anyone else. We will play with (Emanuel) Herrera and (Gaetan) Charbonnier who are already at our club."

The 31-year-old may end up being released from his contract early, following in the footsteps of Jay Bothroyd - another QPR player who didn't deliver what was expected of him.
