Hill to be offered new deal

QPR are set to offer Clint Hill a new contract.

Manager Mark Hughes has told the defender, whose current deal expires this summer, that he wants to keep him at Loftus Road.

Hill, 33, will therefore have to decide whether to snub interest from a number of Championship clubs and stay at Rangers, where he may not be a first-team regular next season.

Other QPR players are likely to discover within the next 48 hours whether they have a future at the club.

The contracts of Akos Buzsaky, Danny Gabbidon and keeper Radek Cerny also expire this summer and they are waiting to be told whether they will be offered new deals or are being released along with the likes of Fitz Hall and Patrick Agyemang.

Keeper Paddy Kenny, whose contract is up next year, is hoping to be given an extension.

“I’ve always said it wouldn’t happen until the end of the season, and with the game on Sunday behind us we can have those conversations,” Hughes told West London Sport.

“There are a number of players with various situations and I understand that, but the priority had to be to focus on staying in the Premier League and then see where we stand.”

Meanwhile, Hughes and chief executive Philip Beard are today due to discuss the future of Joey Barton following the captain’s violent outburst against Manchester City.
