Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun and QPR have both confirmed the departure of the player following the hamstring injury he sustained against Coventry City towards the end of last season in the Championship.
Balogun, according to the club, left to focus on his rehabilitation from the injury sustained last season and has left their pre-season camp.
The 35-year-old managed 16 appearances for the Championship club since joining them a year ago.
In his message on Twitter, he said:
“Thank you to everyone at @officialqpr – the staff, the players and you the supporters.
Despite everything that has happened throughout this very difficult season, I’ve really enjoyed my time at the club.
I’m wishing you nothing but the best for the future, you Rsss.”
QPR confirming his departure on the club website wrote:
“LEON Balogun has left QPR following his recuperation from the hamstring injury he sustained against Coventry City towards the end of last season.
The defender’s contract with the club expired in June but he remained part of the squad throughout the close season and early pre-season to aid his recovery.
The 35-year-old, who traveled with the group to Austria, has now left the camp.
Balogun joined QPR 12 months ago and made 16 appearances during his time with us, scoring once.
The club would like to thank Leon for his service and wish him well in the future.”
