Hill set to sign new QPR contract

Clint Hill is set to sign a new contract at QPR.

The defender, whose current deal expires this summer, is expected to put pen to paper later today.

Hill, 33, had indicated that he would stay at Loftus Road despite interest from a number of Championship clubs, including Leeds.

He played under Leeds boss Neil Warnock for Crystal Palace and at QPR, where he ended last season as the club’s player of the year.

It has been a remarkable turnaround for the Liverpudlian, who told West London Sport in February that he was resigned to being shown the door.

Warnock’s successor Mark Hughes was keen for Hill to stay but is reluctant to allow members of his 25-man Premier League squad to leave on loan even if they are not getting first-team football.

That left Hill with a decision to make ahead of yet another influx of players.
