Queens Park Rangers have this afternoon announced the termination of contracts of five current players.
The five players concerned are Sean Thomas, Aaron Goode, Andrew Howell, Stefan Bailey and Matthew Pickens.
Young goalkeeper Sean Thomas has only had a handful of appearances on the bench before loan moves to Wealdstone and Bristol City, whilst another goalkeeper Matthew Pickens was yet to make a first team appearance following his free transfer move from MLS outfit Chicago Fire.
Last seasons winner of the Kiyan Prince award, Aaron Goode has also gone, he also had a brief loan spell away from the club and did not do enough to impress manager Luigi De Canio. Whilst fellow defender Andrew Howell could not take advantage of Rangers long-term vacant left-back position, making only a handful of senior appearances has also been let go.
Finally leaving the club is Stefan Bailey, a combative midfielder that certainly impressed in his early days, has gone off the boil and with the club moving on, Bailey hasn`t quite scaled the previous heights. His successful loan spell with Oxford United might encourage manager Darren Patterson to make his signature permanent.
