Queens Park Rangers duo Lee Cook and Martin Rowlands appear likely to be on the move after not being handed squad numbers for the new Premier League season.

Doubts over the duo's future emerged earlier this summer after they failed to make a pre-season friendly appearance, as well as the squads that toured Cornwall and Italy.

Cook and Rowlands now look set to leave Loftus Road and could be joined by Leon Clarke, Gary Borrowdale and Antonio German.

The trio were also not handed a squad number by manager Neil Warnock and look set to leave the top-flight newcomers.

Summer signing Jay Bothroyd was handed the number 10 jersey, while fellow new-boys Danny Gabbidon and Kieron Dyer were given six and eight respectively.

Talisman Adel Taarabt retains the number seven shirt, while an article on the club's website highlighted the fact the number nine shirt still remains vacant.

Speculation suggests that Blackpool striker DJ Campbell will take the number if he completes his move to QPR this week.

QPR announced last week that the Tangerines had accepted a bid for the striker, reportedly of £1.25million.
