No enquiries about Smithies but two are set to leave QPR

Ben Gladwin and Michael Doughty look increasingly likely to leave QPR.

West London Sport report that Rangers, who have been in talks with Blackburn over Gladwin, now look very likely to agree a deal for him to move to Ewood Park and are ready to let Doughty join Peterborough.

Gladwin has failed to impress since arriving from Swindon Town two years ago, while Doughty is a Rangers youth product who has been unable to establish himself as a first-team player at the club.

West London Sport also report that QPR have so far received no enquiries about Alex Smithies despite speculation over the goalkeeper’s future.

The expected departures of Gladwin and Doughty are part of boss Ian Holloway’s overhaul of his midfield.

Josh Scowen is set to sign from Barnsley after rejecting a new deal at the Yorkshire club, while Rangers are looking to offload Ariel Borysiuk.

The likes of Gladwin, Doughty and Borysiuk were not included in Holloway’s squad for a trip to Portugal, where Rangers are at a training camp as part of their pre-season preparations.

Olamide Shodipo, meanwhile, has also stayed in London as he is receiving treatment for an injury which sidelined him in March, when the 19-year-old winger was on loan at Port Vale.
