Rejuvenated Wallace earns new QPR contract

Lee Wallace is set to sign a new one-year deal at QPR.

An option to extend Wallace’s contract by 12 months will be triggered after the Scot’s impressive run in the side.

Wallace, who turns 34 in August, was signed on a two-year deal in 2019 from Glasgow Rangers, where he previously played under Mark Warburton.

He has struggled for fitness and form for much of his time at the club but has been a revelation during the second half of the season.

R’s boss Warburton regards Wallace as a key player on and off the pitch and is keen for him to stay.

Field option

There is also a desire to keep Sam Field when his loan spell ends – but there is an element of doubt over whether the midfielder will join from West Brom on a permanent basis. The move is not quite a foregone conclusion.

Field was signed in the final hours of the January transfer window with an option to buy.

However, that option would have been QPR’s rather than West Brom’s if Field made 12 starts during his loan spell.

His omission from the team at Swansea on Tuesday therefore means the situation is somewhat out of Rangers’ hands as he has made eight starts and there are only three matches of the season remaining.

That technically means West Brom can now block a permanent deal for Field, although currently all parties expect the move to go ahead.

West Brom also hold an option to extend Charlie Austin’s contract by a year when his current deal expires this summer.
