It seems likely that striker Marco Ramkilde will leave QPR at the end of the season.
Rangers signed the Dane last year after he impressed during a trial – and he made his debut against West Brom on the final day of last season.
Ramkilde, 22, had injury problems prior to his move and it was hoped they could be put behind him.
However, he has continued to be plagued by injuries and has not featured at all this season.
With his contract up in the summer, his future will be assessed – but director of football of Ferdinand clearly feels the move has not worked out.
Speaking at a fans forum, Ferdinand said: “We took Marco and we knew he had a good reputation as a young player.
“He’d had a few injuries. We were hoping that he was over those injuries.
“He came on trial with us and we liked what we saw, so we thought ‘Let’s give him a year’s contract with an option and see how he goes – see if we can get him fit’.
“Unfortunately for Marco, that’s not been the case. It’s been one injury after another and it’s been a disaster for his season.
“In the lockdown he went back home. He’s come back now and we’re seeing where he is.
“We’ll assess it come the end of the season.”
