Ch­ery-o to Dutch ace

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT - by Tom Moore tom.moore@trin­i­tymir­

Tjaronn Ch­ery has re­fused a new deal at QPR and will be sold this month if a suit­able of­fer comes in.

It’s no sur­prise the Dutch play­maker has been omit­ted from the last three matches –the lat­est a 2-1 win over Ipswich on Mon­day.

In­sid­ers be­lieve the man who hit four goals in the first eight games of the sea­son went off the boil when he failed to agree terms with the Hoops on ex­tend­ing his deal be­yond 2018.

The 28-year-old is un­der­stood to have po­ten­tial suit­ors, and boss Ian Hol­loway needs to free up wages and trans­fer fees to re­cruit fresh blood.

Ch­ery signed for the Hoops from FC Gronin­gen in the sum­mer of 2015 for £2 mil­lion. He has played 47 times for the Hoops and hit 14 goals, in­clud­ing a mem­o­rable free­kick against Black­burn in Septem­ber.

Hol­loway be­lieves QPR’s back-to-back wins could help them at­tract play­ers dur­ing a ‘mas­sive’ trans­fer win­dow.

Rangers, who lost six in a row be­fore a New Year’s Eve vic­tory at Wolves, beat Ipswich 2-1 at Lof­tus Road to fur­ther lift their morale.

“Now they’re feel­ing a lot bet­ter and I can’t thank them enough,” said R’s boss Hol­loway.

“The win­dow’s mas­sive for us and now peo­ple have seen us win two games they might ac­tu­ally want to come here in­stead of thinking ‘Do I want to go in to a dress­ing room like that?’

“No-one likes to have a ter­ri­ble run like that. It’s a hor­ri­ble feel­ing and I felt so down, but I never showed the lads be­cause what they were pro­duc­ing at times was quite promis­ing but they were get­ting noth­ing.”
