Right-back has extended deal with Rs until 2021

Queens Park Rangers defender Darnell Furlong has extended his contract until the summer of 2021.

The 22-year-old’s previous deal was due to expire next summer, but the son of former Rs legend Paul has agreed to extend his stay.

A product of the QPR academy, Furlong established himself in the first team at the backend of last season and is excited about his future at Loftus Road.

“I am delighted. No contract is more special than the one you’re signing now and having been here since I was ten it means a lot,” he said.

“Contracts aren’t just given to you, you have to work hard to earn them. You can’t take it for granted and already I’m thinking about what I need to do to earn the next one. Nothing is going to change for me.

“I am just happy this has been sorted out so that I can focus fully on doing what I need to do to get out on the pitch.”
