Pascal Chimbonda exit confirmed by QPR boss Warnock

Pascal Chimbonda has effectively left Queens Park Rangers after being told he will not play for the club again.

The defender, 32, moved to Loftus Road on a six-month deal in January after leaving Blackburn, but was not going to be offered a longer-term contract.

"I didn't think there was any point in not telling him early, so he could get fixed up," said QPR boss Neil Warnock.

"I haven't seen him. He's not been training with us, although he'd be quite welcome to."

Chimbonda had two spells at Tottenham, and also played for Wigan and Sunderland before joining Blackburn in August 2009.

He was signed by Warnock primarily as cover, and did not start a single game for the Championship leaders.

The Frenchman's final appearance for QPR was as a second-half substitute in their recent 4-1 defeat at Scunthorpe.
