Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar has flown to Portugal for talks with Benfica.

34-year-old Cesar was Brazil's number one at the World Cup, but he's being kept out of the QPR side by Rob Green, having not played a game for Rangers since April 2013. Reports suggest the keeper's wages are astronomically high and the hierarchy are keen to off-load him as quickly as possible to free up some salary funds for new acquisitions.

Joey Barton is back in the Premier League with Queens Park Rangers and is off to a solid start in the Yahoo fantasy game.

Barton isn't everybody's cup of tea but he can be a useful fantasy asset, thanks to his all-action midfield style combined with set piece duty. QPR were defeated by Hull on Saturday but three of Barton's corners found a team-mate for successful cross points, and he also won tackles, intercepted passes and blocked a shot. Nine points is a decent return and we'll be monitoring his form over the coming weeks to check for consistency.

QPR were ideally set up to take an opening day point but Charlie Austin missed a penalty and the R's went down 1-0 on opening day.

Early in the second half Harry Redknapp's men went down 1-0 to a James Chester goal. The Hull defender provided the R's with a way back in to the match when he conceded a penalty. Austin stepped up but missed his chance on his Premier League debut.

QPR's new signing Steven Caulker made the top of the list of AM's fantasy defensive recommendations for Week 1.

One of the highest scoring defenders in Yahoo's game last season, Caulker is back in the Premier League with QPR after relegation with Cardiff and is priced very reasonably indeed at just £7million, with a home game against Hull.

Harry Redknapp is confident Loic Remy will be available for Saturdays season opener against Hull City.

The Queens Park Rangers coach confirmed during today’s pre-match press conference that the striker has trained ahead of the game and the early indications are good. Redknapp commented on the player’s commitment and attitude since the breakdown of his proposed move to Liverpool suggesting Remy will be involved in some capacity. However Adel Taarabt is set to miss out having failed to train since his return from a loan spell in Italy; the Moroccan international is hoping to secure a move away from Loftus Road.

Queens Park Rangers were defeated at Loftus Road 0-1 by Greek side PAOK in their final match of the preseason.

While there were no goals to increase the appeal of QPR's attacking players, there were some appealing notes to take from the loss. Jordon Mutch was given his first start in the blue and white stripes as he comes off a season where he on a short list of fantasy contributors from Cardiff City. Even more intriguing is Harry Redknapp's decision to start Junior Hoilett up top alongside Charlie Austin. Hoilett was already on the radar after a brace earlier in the preseason in which he played "in the hole". He is a potential out-of-position bargain midfielder that looks to be a regular in QPR's XI.

Harry Redknapp has continued to go against type as he brought in another young player who has never played for him before - things are getting interesting at Loftus Road.

The R's manager has been derided in the media for his recent tendency to buy big veteran names that might not be particularly interested in playing for the club but rather a few final big paychecks. That trend looked like it would continue with the addition of Rio Ferdinand but since then he has signed Steven Caulker, Jordon Mutch and now versatile defender/midfielder Mauricio Isla. It isn't clear how he will be listed in various fantasy games or how he will be deployed since he can play right midfield, right back and center back.

Queens Park Rangers have signed midfielder Mauricio Isla on a one-year loan from Juventus.

Isla is a central midfielder who can play a variety of positions in the middle of the pitch. He excels in passing and setting up teammates but has had trouble with fouling a bit too often. The 26-year-old failed to establish a consistent role at Juventus last season but he has the opportunity to earn a starting spot this year. Unfortunately, his tendency to foul often and lack of goal scoring threat will limit his fantasy appeal.
Aug 6 - 4:01 PM

Junior Hoilett and Charlie Austin each scored twice as QPR beat Shamrock Rovers 4-0 in a pre-season friendly at Tallaght Stadium.

Harry Redknapp fielded an attacking 3-5-2 line-up, with Hoilett operating in the hole behind Austin and Bobby Zamora in attack, which could be how QPR choose to start the season. Austin was the star of last season's promotion push and many people are tipping him to have a big impact in the Premier League as QPR look to avoid dropping straight back down the Championship. He grabbed two goals here, while Hoilett also looked sharp, scoring a brace himself as the London side won comfortably.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew continues to 'monitor' Loic Remy's situation after a move to Liverpool broke down.

We're no clearer as to why Remy's move to Liverpool broke down, with Harry Redknapp denying claims the striker failed a medical, but for now he remains at QPR. That could change if Alan Pardew formally renews interest in a player who scored 14 goals for Newcastle during last season's impressive loan spell. If Remy can prove his fitness then he would be a fine signing for any Premier League club

Harry Redknapp has urged Adel Taarabt to 'get himself in shape', if the playmaker wants to have a future at Queens Park Rangers.

Taarabt continues to live up to his reputation. While blessed with huge amount of talent, the midfielder has never been able to settle at a club, often falling foul of management, team-mates and fans. Taarabt spent the first half of last season on loan at Fulham before taking in the second half of the campaign with AC Milan, but he reported to QPR for pre-season in bad shape. Redknapp revealed the midfielder was unfit and has yet to train with his London club, so it will be some time before he sees Premier League action this season. Don't rule out a move away before the transfer window shuts at the end of August.

Liverpool have pulled out of a deal to sign QPR striker Loic Remy.

While no official statement has been released, the majority of media outlets are reporting that Remy failed his medical, leaving Liverpool no choice but to withdraw their £8.5million offer. However, Sky Sports have suggested that Fabio Borini's refusal to move to Sunderland on a permanent basis is the real sticking point, with Brendan Rodgers unable to move for another striker when he already has Borini, Daniel Sturridge and Ricky Lambert in his squad. Whatever the reason, the collapse leaves Remy's career in limbo.

Former West Ham United midfielder Jack Collison is hoping to make the most of his trial with Queens Park Rangers.

Collison has battled a chronic knee problem causing him to miss much of the past two season and he was released by the Hammers back in May, but QPR could offer him a lifeline. The 25-year-old midfielder is training with Harry Redknapp's squad during in pre-season and he hopes some good performances could earn him a short-term contract to help relaunch his career.

Jul 25 - 6:20 AM

QPR have signed Cardiff City defender Steven Caulker for an undisclosed fee.

While the deal is undisclosed the majority of media outlets are reporting a four-year-deal and a fee in the region of £8.5million. The 22-year-old defender leaves relegated Cardiff to join up with his former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp, and instantly boosts the chances of Queens Park Rangers avoiding relegation this season. England international (with one cap so far) Caulker will form a new partnership alongside recently signed veteran Rio Ferdinand, and should provide value in the Yahoo fantasy game having been one of the most productive defensive point scorers last season.

Queens Park Rangers are interested in Cardiff defender Steven Caulker who is up for grabs after Cardiff were relegated last season.

Caulker is a quality defender and a great leader who captained Cardiff last season. Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already acknowledged that Caulker and Campbell Frazier are on the way out and QPR are reportedly in the hunt for Caulker. QPR have signed veteran center-back Rio Ferdinand but it's unknown if he can stay healthy and a defender of Caulker's quality will certainly help their chances of avoiding relegation. If Caulker ends on a team where he will be a starting defender, he will have good fantasy value as he's very active in chasing down players and getting in front of the ball to block shots.
