Queens Park Rangers of the Sky Bet Championship are set to offer a new contract to Darnell Furlong as they look to secure the promising defender’s long-term future at the club, according to West London Sport.
His contract expires in the summer of 2017 and it seems the second-tier outfit are keen to keep hold of one of their youth academy products.
The 21 year-old is currently on loan at League One strugglers Swindon Town but his parent club are reportedly likely to recall Furlong from his spell at the County Ground as they look for cover in the defensive positions – midfielder Michael Doughty is also at the Robins but he’s been linked to go back to QPR in January.
Furlong has been a prominent member of the Robins’ squad this season, making 25 appearances for them so far.
Since his debut in February 2015 against Hull City in the Premier League, the Luton-born defender has played just five games for Queens Park Rangers.
Manager Ian Holloway has never tried to hide his admiration for the youngster, saying this during his time as a pundit; “I watched Darnell Furlong and Michael Doughty. I was buzzing! They played so well, the both of them,”
QPR fans, do you see Darnell Furlong as a long-term player at the club? Does he bring something new to the side?
