Alejandro Faurlin says he would like to commit himself to QPR and sign a new contract.
The 27-year-old midfielder’s current deal expires at the end of the season and he expects to wait until then for his future to be decided.
But Faurlin insists he would not keep the club waiting if they were to approach him before next summer.
“If they ask me to sign I will sign without a doubt,” he said.
“I am not the sort of player to wait and see what happens. Sometimes players gamble, but I don’t like to gamble. I like where I am.”
Faurlin has experienced highs and lows during an extremely eventful four years at Loftus Road.
Since returning from a long-term knee injury he endured an unhappy spell in Italy on loan at Palermo.
And his first-team prospects remained bleak at the start of this season when he was again overlooked by boss Harry Redknapp, who has plenty of midfield options.
A recent recall to the first team has raised Faurlin’s hopes that he may end up prolonging his stay in west London after all.
But if that doesn’t happen, the Argentine is confident that he will be picked up by another club in England, where he intends to remain.
He explained: “I look forward to staying in England. My son is in school now. I have to think of him – his first language is English.
“If I play my part then it would not be a problem finding a club. If you are not playing you try to go somewhere else – that is normal. I can say I have played 120 games [for QPR].
“At 27 you want to be relaxed, with a contract, not in the last year. This is my last year and it is not my decision.
“I’m working hard and showing the manager that I want to be part of things.”
