Queens Park Rangers have enjoyed a largely positive start to the campaign with Mark Warburton’s side recording a healthy points return of 13 from a possible 21 in the first month and a half of the season, a good start with a lot of teams in the Championship still finding their feet.
Several players have performed well for the R’s in the opening few weeks of this season, however, Ilias Chair has perhaps made the biggest impact since being reinstated into the first team after a loan spell last season at League Two side Stevenage, with the youngster putting in some brilliant performances since his return to the West London club.
As such, it has come as no surprise that Rangers offered a new contract to the attacking midfielder, with the 21-year-old today signing on the dotted line, which ties him to the R’s until 2023. It’s an announcement that has gone down well with their star striker Nahki Wells, who was quick to react in a simple yet positive fashion to the news of Chair’s new deal on Twitter.

And the Loftus Road faithful will no doubt also be delighted with the news of this agreement, with Chair so far registering one goal and two assists in his first eight games in all competitions for the R’s – there is definitely reasons to be positive about the youngster’s start to the season.

Whilst in addition to his goals and assists, Chair has also contributed an impressive 1.8 key passes per game, with an overall average passing success rate of 85.9%, which showcases the player’s brilliant ability when in possession of the ball in attacking areas, something that Wells and his fellow striker Jordan Hugill will no doubt be hoping to benefit from in the R’s upcoming games.
Everyone at QPR will no doubt be delighted with this big news from the club, with the R’s securing a player who can go on to become a future star for the club in seasons to come, with a view to perhaps one day cashing in on him in a future transfer window.
This new deal helps to maximise Chair’s monetary value, which ensures the club should avoid, in theory, the possibility of the youngster leaving for a low fee.
The next target for the R’s will be to secure their other youngster, Eberechi Eze on a new long term contract with Premier League club’s reportedly circling the 21-year-old forward, underlining the brilliant work that has been done by the club to develop their own homegrown talent.
