The former Wolves midfielder is trying to find a club in the transfer window after not only getting it in the neck from supporters, ironically against his old club on December 1 – but also losing favour with his boss.
“Am I going to put him (Henry) back in front of Ryan Manning and (Michael) Doughty and Massimo? No,” said Ian Holloway.
“He knows that and he's actively seeking a move and thinking about the rest of his life now.
“He's had a very good career. We've had a chat, him, Les (Ferdinand) and myself this morning.
“I'm not about to do anything horrible to him and throw him to the kids or anything like that because he's a fantastic pro.
“The facts are if he can get a longer contract with someone else, I would help him do that because I'm not going to give him that.
“I would rather do that for him now, if there's anyone out there who wants a fantastic player who can play in midfield for this year and next year, it's definitely Karl so do it.”
However, the killer line is Henry would have left QPR in the summer had Holloway anything to do with it, rather than getting the approval of former boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
“I've had to be harsh and say I'm sorry, I wouldn't have kept you last summer,” the boss added
“So just because my idea is different to Jimmy's, it doesn't make it right or wrong - that's just facts and he's dealing with it in the proper way.
“So unfortunately, my job is not very nice sometimes and that's not a very nice part of it.”
