Argentinian midfielder Alejandro Faurlin has left QPR for Palermo on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The Argentinian midfielder will spend the rest of the season with the Serie A club after starting just 10 Premier League games this term.

Faurlin is the latest in a line of players to leave Loftus Road this month as Harry Redknapp overhauls his squad ahead of a relegation battle.

Djibril Cisse and Anton Ferdinand are already out on loan, while Ryan Nelsen has left for the MLS and Keiron Dyer has been released.

The Italian left-back, 22, had struggled to settle in Cumbria and returned home in December in an effort to secure a deal with a new club.

"As far as we understand things he's still having trials, but we needed him to make a decision before the transfer window closed," Carlisle's managing director John Nixon said.

"He hasn't settled over here so the best thing for all concerned was to allow him to leave and try to secure himself a deal over in Italy."

Bugno arrived at Brunton Park in July and made four first-team appearances before losing his place in Greg Abbott's side.

Becchio handed in a transfer request at Leeds last week after talks over a new deal for the Argentinian faltered.

It is understood the 29-year-old, who has scored 19 goals for Leeds this season, successfully underwent a medical at the Norfolk club on Thursday morning and will sign for Chris Hughton's side on Thursday afternoon.
