Taarabt Looks To Toon As A Stepping Stone

Adel Taarabt has hinted he could leave QPR and fancies a move to Newcastle ... but it would only be a stepping stone before he moves to "a very big club". Taarabt has admitted talks over a new deal at Loftus Road have hit a stumbling block after Rangers' promotion to the Premier League. The former Tottenham man has admitted the breakdown in discussions could see him leave as he fears they could suffer relegation as things stand. Adel Taarabt: "I helped QPR win promotion but they will not offer me a better contract. They say I am already on big wages. "They want me to stay four years on the same terms. But I don't want to sign for four years then after one year I am going to be back in the Championship. "No disrespect, but if we keep the same players, it will be very difficult to stay in the Premier League when you are playing Man United and Chelsea. "I understand that QPR have changed my life. People had almost forgotten me when I joined from Tottenham. But I don't think they are being fair to me. "People say Newcastle will be good for me, that the fans love players like me. "It is fantastic to play in front of 50,000 supporters every week. I do not need one of the very big clubs at this stage."
