QPR boss Mark Warburton has admitted he has been pleasantly surprised by the emergence of Osman Kakay.
The 23-year-old defender was not in Warburton’s plans prior to a run in the side towards the end of last season.
He is now set to sign an improved contract and has started the new campaign as Rangers’ first-choice right-back.
Warburton said: “I’ve been very honest and said that his commitment and his desire – I didn’t quite realise how focused he was.
“He’s done a magnificent job and kept his shirt. And he’s done very well in the first couple of games.”
Keeper Seny Dieng is also set to sign a new contract.
West London Sport previously revealed that Dieng, Kakay, Conor Masterson and Dom Ball were in line for new deals.
Masterson and Ball have since put pen to paper.
