Freeman in no rush to sign new QPR contract

QPR: Luke Freeman

Luke Freeman says he is in no rush to sign a new contract at QPR.

Freeman, signed from Bristol City in January last year, has 18 months remaining on his current deal.

Rangers, who rejected approaches for Freeman from Middlesbrough and Blackburn during the summer, were able to pick him up for just £350,000 because he was approaching the end of his City contract and indicated he would not sign a new deal.

That forced the Robins to accept a knockdown price rather than lose him on a free transfer a few months later.

QPR are keen to avoid being the ones in that situation and have approached Freeman’s representatives about extending his contract.

“It’s been talked about but there’s no rush as far as I’m concerned,” Freeman said.

“I’ve got two years left so it’s not like I’m coming towards the end of my contract. I’m very happy at QPR and we’ll see what happens.

“I’m only 26 and not in a situation where I need the security. I feel like time is on my side.”

Freeman scored his third goal of the season in QPR’s 3-0 victory against Sheffield Wednesday this week.

It was their third win and clean sheet of a four-match unbeaten run.
