QPR manager Neil Warnock has told Adel Taarabt and the rest of his squad that they were free to leave the club if they wanted to.
Rangers have had to deal with speculation linking clubs with moves for their star players since their promotion to the Barclays Premier League, with talisman Taarabt the main subject of such reports.
The midfielder allegedly fuelled the flames further while on international duty with Morocco, with reports emerging he told the media he wanted to leave QPR in January for financial reasons.
Warnock has taken the comments "with a pinch of salt" but admitted that Taarabt, like the rest of his squad, was free to leave the west Londoners if he so desired.
"He has not said anything to me [about wanting to leave]," Warnock said, speaking ahead of Saturday's clash with Blackburn. "I do take it with a pinch of salt when they go abroad [and reports come out]. It is only six weeks since Adel said he would never play for his country again and then he scores a goal and kisses the coach. That's Adel. You take everything with a pinch of a salt.
"My message is the same with every player at the club, not just Adel. If a player wants to leave, he can leave. I've never had a problem with that."
