Queens Park Rangers’ plans for a new stadium have been dealt a blow after the landowner for the proposed site refused to negotiate with the club.

Rangers are seeking a move away from their current venue Loftus Road, in order to build a 40,000-seater stadium in the Old Oak Common area of London.

The project is said to be creating more than 55,000 jobs, as well as 24,000 new homes during its construction period. 

Former QPR sponsor Cargiant currently own the land on which the club hope to build their future home, but are unwilling to enter talks over its sale to the club.

“We are very surprised by QPR’s PR campaign regarding a proposed new stadium in Old Oak common and in particular on land owned by Cargiant,” a company statement read.

“The company are not in negotiations with QPR and will not enter into any future talks with the club.”
