QPR are craving for a period of stability as Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink becomes the fifth manager of the Tony Fernandes era at Loftus Road.
Rangers have had almost a quarter of a billion put into them since the Malaysian invested in the club in 2011, but find themselves in mid table of the Championship after two relegations and one promotion.
Players have come and gone in that time, as have managers, and director of football Les Ferdinand is keen to put the club on a stable pathway to success.
He said: “We want some stability at the football club and I think for any football club, that's imperative but certainly for us.
“We've seen a lot of coming and goings in recent times. I believe that's because we've not had the foundations in place and that's what we're aiming to put back in the football club.”
Ferdinand, who was Tim Sherwood’s assistant at Tottenham in 2014, joined QPR in October 2014 as head of football operations, before being appointed to the director of football role in February 2015.

But he believes the club are on the right path to success, but knows from his time at Spurs that these things don’t happen overnight.
He added: “I've been on the pitch and saw how long it took for the likes of Andros Townsend and Harry Kane to come through the system. It doesn't happen overnight.
“I think we have an advantage because some of the boys like (Michael) Petrasso and (Darnell) Furlong have had a taste of the first team. They'll be closer to it than those boys were when I was at Tottenham.”
Ferdinand though has been enjoying the chance to mould a club from top to bottom and will give everything he has to see QPR progress.
He explained: “It's been interesting. It's a role I wanted to play at some stage in my career. I've been given the opportunity here and I'm really pleased about that.
“I want to move QPR forward and can see how it needs to be moved forward. I'm relishing the opportunity to do that.”
