QPR defender Nedum Onuoha insists he has no say whether he stays or goes.
The defender joked that if the club wanted he could end up being shopped out to some far, flung foreign shore like the ‘Turkish Super League, fifth division.’
He added: “The final decision always rests with the club.
“I’ve struggled to see players over the years create a move for themselves just because the club has gone down.
“You can never pinpoint what happens next.
“I want to be in the Premier League - it’s why I came to the club, and I’ve played in the Championship. But while you’re under contract, the club can ask you to play in the Turkish Super League, fifth division, or something."
The 28-year-old has another year left on his deal, but offered a fascinating insight into how footballers think when a club gets relegated as they plot the next move.
Onuoha said: “If you are at the very peak of your career then it’s different.
"But others who are a bit older and happy just to play football, and they have families that are happy in the area and stable think a different way, perhaps.
“I have another year, so I’m still here for another year.”
