QPR have announced that defender, Charlie Rowan has signed a contract extension with the club.
The new deal will see Rowan remain with the club until next season, which will give the youngster a chance to stake a claim for a spot in the QPR first-team.
Rowan is yet to feature for the QPR first-team and has struggled with injuries since joining the club midway through last season.
The 21-year-old is currently part of the QPR under 23’s team and expressed his eagerness to get back into action next season in an interview with QPR’s official website.
“Last season was a bit of a set-back, in terms of injuries, so I wasn’t able to progress as much as I wanted but I feel like it’s a new start now, a clean slate and I’m buzzing to get started.
“The club are showing faith in me and they believe in me. They’ve given me a plan, told me where they want me next season and I’m really happy with that and can’t wait to start.”
He’ll be keen to make up for lost time and potentially force his way into the QPR first-team next season, as they look to build on a season full of highs and lows last season.
I’m surprised he’s penned a new deal.
There’s no doubting that Rowan is a player with a bright future ahead of him, but I thought that his injury troubles would lead to him not being offered a new contract.
He needs to prove himself now though and force his way into the QPR first-team in the near future.
