Tony Fernandes has revealed he would be open to the possibility of Queens Park Rangers moving to a new stadium, with the new owner considering the idea of sharing a home ground with another club.

Fernandes took over the Hoops in mid-August, and since then the Malaysian businessman has helped make some big name signings including Shaun Wright-Phillips and Joey Barton.

And now, after making comments that he may make a play for David Beckham in the near future, Fernandes is tabling the idea of moving to better facilities if the club can stay in the top-flight next season.

"There's potential for another stadium," Fernandes told the Evening Standard.

"The most obvious one would be somewhere in White City. There are parcels of land around there, some owned by the BBC.


"Westfield [shopping centre] has opened up a lot of potential and we would be looking for a stadium of 40-45,000."

Fernandes admitted that sharing a stadium with another club could also be a possibility, with clubs in other countries making the system work despite their differences on the pitch.

"My first game in Italy was AC Milan v Inter Milan. These are two of the biggest clubs in the world and they share a stadium," he continued.

"I'm not saying that we're going to do it but there's nothing that should be not looked at. And there was precedence here; Crystal Palace and Charlton shared at some stage."

QPR clocked up a convincing win against Wolves over the weekend, winning 3-0 in a sign that the new signings are gelling well with the rest of the squad.
