QPR TO ANNOUNCE NEW STADIUM PLANS

QPR's plans for a new £180m 45,000-seater stadium are expected to be revealed on Monday.

The R's chairman Tony Fernandes revealed on Monday that the search for a suitable location in west London is a step closer to reaching a conclusion. Last week it was reported the club were evaluating three potential plots but Fernandes has stated it is now between two sites.

QPR said in a statement last week: "The announcement will put the QPR brand on a global scale and is further demonstration of the Board's continuing efforts to move the club forward and become established in the Barclays Premier League.

The move would see the Hoops leave their current home Loftus Road. The club have played there for the best part of 95 years but it is currently the smallest ground in the Barclays Premier League with a capacity of only 18,439.
