QPR striker Djibril Cissé set for Qatar move


Queen's Park Rangers striker Djibril Cissé has begun transfer talks with Qatar side Al-Gharafa. Cissé has found starting opportunities limited under Harry Redknapp, who this week said he would be open to offers for the Frenchman.

And after Loïc Rémy's arrival at Loftus Road, Cissé is set to be pushed further down the pecking order. Meanwhile, Rémy has received international clearance and is available to play on Saturday at West Ham.
