Rangers hope to get the green light for the fresh design after encountering problems since the scheme received approval in December 2013.

A decision regarding planning consent is expected in the summer.

QPR director of football Les Ferdinand said: "This is a vitally important project for the club and one in which I will have a hands on role.

"We are working closely with Populous and Ealing Council to ensure QPR has a state-of-the-art facility that brings the First Team, Academy and Community together in a unique hub.

"QPR has always been a club that takes pride in its local community and we will ensure that bond is strengthened with this exciting move to Warren Farm."

The plans would see Rangers build a new complex for the first team and academy sides to include gym, medical, performance analysis, education, office and changing facilities.

There will also be a new community pavilion, providing changing facilities and a new multi-purpose social space.

Rangers have faced opposition from local campaigning groups wanting to preserve the Warren Farm area, but a High Court ruled in the club's favour last year.
