Neil Warnock admits there are likely to be 'comings and goings' at Queens Park Rangers in January, with a number of his players already attracting interest.
The Loftus Road outfit are prepared to part with those on the fringes of their squad, with it important to free up space for possible incomings.
Martin Rowlands, Lee Cook and Hogan Ephraim are already out on loan and could make permanent moves after missing out on a place in QPR's 25-man Premier League squad.
Rob Hulse and Patrick Agyemang find themselves stuck in the reserves and will be eager to find regular football, while Jason Puncheon is expected to return to Southampton when his loan deal expires.
Warnock claims to have already fielded approaches for several players and acknowledges that the New Year is likely to be a hectic time for him.
"I think some of the lads will want to go and we're getting enquiries from a number of clubs, including for those in the current squad as well," he told the Fulham and Hammersmith Chronicle.
"That's football. There will be some comings and goings in the next six weeks."
Warnock has also revealed that QPR are in contract talks with Clint Hill, among others.
The full-back has spent time on loan at Nottingham Forest this season, but has made six first-team appearances since being recalled from the City Ground.
The 33-year-old's current deal is set to expire at the end of the season and he recently expressed a desire for his future to be resolved before January.
Warnock admits the club have held initial discussions with the player, but insists there is no rush to bring those talks to a conclusion.
He said: "Clint's [contract] is up at the end of the season, but I don't think there's any rush. We're talking to Clint and a number of other players."
