According to The Sun, although it was reported that Junior Hoilett’s career at Queens Park Rangers was coming to an end, he could, in fact, be getting a shock contract renewal.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has begun to shape his squad at Loftus Road and he isn’t afraid to make the difficult decisions regarding players’ futures at the club.
One player that look destined to leave the club despite heavily featuring for QPR is Canadian international, Junior Hoilett. The winger seemed to be out of favour at the club and on his way out.
However, Les Ferdinand’s comments suggest that he might have a future at the club. Hoilett looked to be leaving as his mammoth £40,000-a-week contract was the main deterring factor however if he was to take a wage cut to fit the current wage structure then he may stay at the club.
“Junior in recent months has improved and is performing how we know he can,” said the R’s Director of Football.
“If he can sustain this form then there is a conversation to be had. But he’s on a contract where he must need to fall in line with the budgets we have.”
Hasselbaink’s side currently sit 11th in the Championship and the Ducthman will hope his can earn a play-off place with his men just nine points behind sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday.
