James Perch joined QPR from Wigan on a three-year deal in 2015.

Queens Park Rangers say full-back James Perch will be out "for a number of months" with a dislocated kneecap.

The 31-year-old sustained the injury in the 2-1 win over Hull City on 19 August and now faces a prolonged period on the sidelines.

"We're all really devastated for him but he's a strong character and we're all right behind him," boss Ian Holloway told QPR's website.

Fellow defender Joel Lynch has picked up a hamstring injury.

Meanwhile, midfielder Nasser El-Khayati, 28, has had his contract terminated by mutual consent.

He joined the R's in January 2016 from Burton Albion and went on to make 25 appearances, scoring one goal.
