But co-owners Tony Fernandes and Amit Bhatia have made it a top priority to move out of their current base into a more modern facility.

And Sportsmail can reveal that the Loftus Road club are in talks over a move to Warren Farm, in Osterley.

The grounds are already in place, though the land would need a major makeover. And QPR are willing to spend between 5m-6m on upgrading the land to Premier League standards.

The acquisition of the land would be subject to QPR agreeing with Ealing Council that Warren Fields will still be of use to the public at specified times.

Mark Hughes was appointed new QPR boss on Tuesday and the promise of a move to a new stadium and a state of the art training ground was a key reason behind his decision to become Neil Warnock's successor.

QPR are looking into building a new stadium on the vacant 10 acre Dairy Crest site, in White City.
