26-year-old Championship winger considering offer from Premier League



Junior Hoilett is reportedly at a crossroads in his career as he is torn between signing a new contract at Loftus Road and a potential move to the Premier League, according to GetWestLondon.

The Canadian joined the R’s in 2012 but has been in and out of the side with a different manager to match the four years he has been at the club and although QPR’s boss Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink has offered the winger a new contract, the 26-year-old is unsure of his future in West London.

Hoilett is one of nine players at Loftus Road who are either out of contract or at the end of a loan spell after the 2015/16 campaign. However, Hoilett is just one of two out of those nine players to be offered a new contract, with midfielder Karl Henry also being offered new terms.

As a result, it is clear to see the desire for QPR to keep him at the club. Although his 2015/16 season was hit and miss, glimpses of his quality were shown in his superb curling strike against Brentford that saw him win goal of the season at the club.

Despite the club’s fondness of his ability, the winger will need to be prepared to take a pay cut to just 25% of his current £42,000 a week deal.

The danger of Hoilett leaving Loftus Road seems to looming large with reported Premier League interest coming from Swansea City, and although the Canadian has claimed he is enjoying life in West London, the prospect of a move to the Premier League could be very inviting.

QPR fans… what do you think of Hoilett’s situation? Would you like him to stay at QPR or do you expect him to leave for a potential switch for Premier League football? Let us know in the comment section below!
