Chairman of Championship side Queens Park Rangers Tony Fernandes has taken to Twitter to announce the imminent departure of four players from the club.
Something of a player exodus has occurred at Loftus Road so far this summer, with Chris Samba, Jose Bosingwa, Jamie Mackie, Djibril Cisse, DJ Campbell, Jay Bothroyd and Tal Ben Haim all having left the west London club.
In a short message sure to agitate Hoops fans, Malaysian businessman Fernandes - who bought QPR in 2011 - tweeted: "I predict four more players will leave QPR. Two more will leave on loan next week as we want to keep them for future. But more to go. Lets see."
In a later Twitter message, 49-year-old Fernandes also said: "I'm resolute on getting people who want to play with pride for QPR. Who get excited to put the hoops shirt. Who want promotion. Hungry."
Many QPR players were criticised last season for seemingly not playing with enough passion to save their team from relegation after a dire campaign, which saw them finish with just 25 points from 38 games, propping up the table, and so it is thought that the club will move fast to move 'deadwood' players on from the club to rectify this.
"We will bolster firepower. We are working damn hard. I learn fast. And I don’t care about negative comments" he added, in response to criticism of him for using a social networking website to inform fans of important club news.
Rangers have so far signed midfielder Karl Henry from Wolves as well as veteran centre-back Richard Dunne and right-back Danny Simpson on free transfers.
