Two Turkish clubs have shown an interest in QPR striker Jay Bothroyd following his release from Loftus Road this week.
Turkish giants Fenerbache and Besiktas are leading the chase for striker Jay Bothroyd after his release from QPR, reports the Daily Mail.
The former Arsenal trainee still had another year left to run on his contract, although the club decided to activate their option of releasing him after two years as they begin their summer clearout.
Bothroyd only managed 25 league appearances at Loftus Road during his two seasons after arriving from Cardiff in 2011, and spent the second half of last season out on loan at Sheffield Wednesday.
If the 31-year-old does make the switch to Turkey, he will join a growing number of Englishmen making a living in the Super Lig.
Former England international goalkeeper Scott Carson has spent the past two seasons at Bursaspor, where he had fellow compatriot Anton Ferdinand as a teammate for the second half of last season.
At the other end of the table, ex-Birmingham City youngster Jake Jervis switched to Elazığspor in January on a three-and-a-half year deal.
Meanwhile, QPR boss Harry Redknapp is weighing up a possible move for free agent Carlton Cole, following his release from West Ham. According to the Daily Mail, the R’s face competition from newly promoted Hull City for Cole’s signature.
