Hughes to splash the cash at QPR
QPR have confirmed that Mark Hughes will take over from Neil Warnock and faces a real challenge in his quest to stave off relegation.
The Hoops are 2/5 to stay up and 7/4 to go down. Hughes has only ever finished in the bottom half of the Premier League once although QPR are 1/12 to fail to make it into the top half of the league this season.
Hughes will be given a large kitty in order to achieve his goals this season and Hills offer 7/1 that he signs six or more players during January although the favourite is two or three new signings to arrive at 11/10.
"Mark Hughes has undoubted pedigree but he faces a real challenge to make much of an impact this season," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "Survival is the ultimate goal and we think that QPR are on course to do just that."
How many permanent players will Mark Hughes sign in January: 3/1 0-1; 11/10 2-3; 9/4 4-5; 7/1 6 or more
Premier League Relegation: 4/9 Wigan; 4/7 Blackburn; 8/11 Bolton; 13/8 Wolves; 7/4 QPR; 7/2 Swansea; 7/1 Norwich; 14/1 BAR
Premier League To Stay Up: 13/8 Wigan; 5/4 Blackburn; 1/1 Bolton; 4/9 Wolves; 2/5 QPR; 1/6 Swansea; 1/16 Norwich; 1/66 BAR
