Out of favour Queens Park Rangers striker Djibril Cisse is on his way of the club after being given permission to talk to Qatari side Al-Gharafa over a move.

QPR 11/4 to beat West Ham!

Former Liverpool and Sunderland forward Cisse was a regular in attack at Loftus Road under former boss Mark Hughes, who brought him to the club, from Lazio, but has found himself on the bench for the most part since Harry Redknapp took over the reins at the club.

And the arrival of fellow French international Loic Remy, who completed a move from Marseille on Wednesday, will make Cisse’s opportunities at Premier League strugglers QPR even more limited for the remainder of the season.

As a result, Cisse, who has scored four times in 21 games for the club including some crucial performances to keep QPR up last season, has been given permission to speak to Al-Gharafa about completing a move away from the Premier League with the Qatari side not put off by Cisse’s huge wage demands.

QPR boss Redknapp is still hoping to conclude a deal to bring Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore in on loan as well as sign another French-based star in the shape of Yann M’Vila.
