QPR to pay large tribunal fee for Blackburn's Hoilett

Junior Hoilett could cost Queens Park Rangers a sizeable figure if their impending deal for the Blackburn Rovers player goes to a tribunal instead of the two clubs agreeing a deal.

The Daily Mail have reported that the fee could be as high as £6m, with the Blackburn manager, Steve Kean, hopeful that will prove to be the case.

Despite being available on a free transfer due to his contract running out, Hoilett will cost his eventual side a figure in a tribunal because of his age and number of years training at Blackburn - a compensatory sum being paid to the club because of the time and resources spent training him.

Kean said: “QPR might make us an offer, if not it might go to a tribunal. We were always hopeful he would to a club here because the compensation would be greater.

The 22-year-old has been a Blackburn player since signing for their youth squad in 2003. He made his senior debut in 2007 and has since gone on to play 81 games for the club, scoring 12 times. Last season he made it clear that his future lay elsewhere, made even more certain by the club’s relegation from the Premier League.

It was thought that Hoilett was on his way to Germany, Borussia Monchengladbach being his destination but it now seems that QPR have stolen the deal at the 11th hour and his move to London is imminent.
