Young defender Darnell Furlong is set to sign a new deal at Queens Park Rangers to commit his long-term future at Loftus Road, amid interest from several Championship clubs this month, according to HITC Sport.
The 21 year-old right-back spent the first half of the season on loan at League One outfit Swindon Town but got recalled at the beginning of January by R’s manager Ian Holloway, as he looked for reinforcements in his defence.
Furlong has been linked with moves to Aston Villa, Reading and Preston North End over the last couple of weeks but with his contract expiring this summer, QPR want to tie him down to a new deal at the club.
The Luton-born man made 25 appearances for the Robins during his loan stint at the County Ground, with one goal and two assists to his tally as well.
Darnell Furlong is likely to be given a string of starts at Queens Park Rangers having started their last two outings against Reading and Fulham with Holloway keen on the young defender.
QPR are still languishing in 17th place in the Sky Bet Championship, and Holloway will be looking to secure three points when they face fellow strugglers Burton Albion at Loftus Road on Saturday.
QPR fans, do you think Darnell Furlong is a long-term prodigy at the club? Is he worthy of starting under Ian Holloway? Would a new contract deter him of thinking about a move away? Let us hear your thoughts in the comments below!
