London:

English Championship side Queens Park Rangers on Friday said that French striker Djibril Cisse had left the club "by mutual consent".

The 31-year-old joined the west London club from Italian side Lazio in January 2012, when QPR were still in the top-flight English Premier League.

He made 29 appearances in all competitions and scored 10 goals but spent the second half of last season on loan at Al-Gharafa, in Qatar.

"The club would like to thank Djibril for his contribution and wish him all the best for the future," a statement said on qpr.co.uk.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp is looking to reduce the club's wage bill after the club were relegated and has already off-loaded striker Jay Bothroyd.

Former Liverpool forward Cisse had a year left on his contract and had been linked to a move to French Ligue 1 side Montpellier.

But the 2011/2012 French championship winners' chairman, Louis Nicollin, said this week he would not sign "a guy who plays DJ in bars" -- a reference to reports that Cisse had DJ'd in the city last week.

Cisse responded on his Twitter account on Thursday night: "What a shame it's not to be with Montpellier, a lovely club, a beautiful city with an idiot chairman who criticises everyone.

"It can't be easy to have such an idiot as a chairman every day."
