Shaun Wright Phillips is almost certain to be looking for a new club in the summer and his father has also confirmed the same. The former Chelsea and Manchester city winger was almost unseen and unnoticed in the victory celebrations for QPR after they managed to return to the Premier league in the first instance. QPR managed to beat Derby 1-0 in the play-off final. Former West Ham striker Bobby Zamora scored the only goal of the game in a smash and grab victory for Harry Redknapp’s team. They are expected to undergo a few changes in the summer not just to prepare for the new season but also to reduce the wage bill of the club.

The future of Wright Phillips has been thrown into doubt after the winger was not very active during the celebrations. He made just 13 appearances for the club last season as they finished third in the Championship table. The 33-year-old has been a QPR player since 2011 but he was one of the name to suffer a lot of criticism after the club was relegated in their second season. He was a £ 3.5 million signing, but the most important aspect in the deal is his wages, which is believed to be in the region of £ 70,000 per week.

“It’s not been for the want of trying. When the fans are wanting something from a player of his calibre and it doesn’t quite work out – you can understand his frustration. Of course, he’d love to be playing more, but when his confidence is low he tries a bit too hard – and that’s his only crime. Sometimes it just doesn’t work out, and he’s tried his best. For a player of his Premier League experience not to figure says the writing’s on the wall, but he’s got a career he can be very proud of,” said his dad.
