Queens Park Rangers left-back Armand Traore looks set to leave the Championship side this summer after it emerged that Dynamo Moscow have made a £1.5million bid for the 23-year-old's services, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Senegalese defender - who was signed by former Hoops manager Neil Warnock for an undisclosed fee in August 2011 - has been informed by the club that he is no longer required following QPR's attempt to clear the deadwood from their squad and kickstart their promotion challenge for next season.

The west London club were relegated last season after collecting just 25 points from 38 Premier League games, and some players came under fire for apparently playing without the passion needed to save their team from the drop.

As a result, QPR have begun something of a player exodus recently, with Chris Samba, Jamie Mackie, Jose Bosingwa, Djibril Cisse, DJ Campbell, Jay Bothroyd and Tal Ben-Haim all having left the club this summer.

And the trend looks set to continue with the imminent exit of Traore, after the Russian outfit tabled an official bid of around £1.5million for the player, and are now favourites to beat French side Bordeaux to his signature.

The Hoops have so far signed experienced midfielder Karl Henry from Wolves, as well as securing free transfers for veteran defender Richard Dunne and right-back Danny Simpson.
