Furlong signs new QPR contract

Darnell Furlong impressed for QPR last season

QPR defender Darnell Furlong has signed a new contract, the club have confirmed.

Furlong’s contract was due to expire next year and he has been given a two-year extension, keeping him at Loftus Road until 2021.

The 22-year-old, a product of Rangers’ youth system, has made 39 league appearances for the R’s.

He was recently ruled out for at least three months with a knee injury.

“Darnell fully deserves this new deal and I am delighted for him,” manager Steve McClaren told the club website.

“He is a huge asset to the club and when he is back and available it will feel like a new signing for us.”

Meanwhile, QPR have rejected an approach from Middlesbrough for Luke Freeman.
