Hill extends QPR contract

Veteran defender Clint Hill has signed a one-year extension to his contract with Queens Park Rangers.

•  Johnson and Nelsen join QPR

Hill, who was voted QPR's Players' Player and Supporters' Player of the Year, has put pen to paper on a deal to take him through to the end of next season, with the option for a further year.

The club, who avoided relegation from the Premier League on the final day of the season, added striker Andy Johnson and defender Ryan Nelsen to their squad on Tuesday and have now moved to retain one of their stalwarts from last term.

He told the club's official website: "I'm absolutely buzzing. As soon as I found out that Mark Hughes wanted to keep me for at least another year, staying here was the only thing on my mind.

"It was a straightforward decision to stay. I love playing here and I love playing at Loftus Road. It's a great ground.''

QPR owner Tony Fernandes is looking into expanding the club's Loftus Road stadium - which remains the smallest in the top flight - and is in the process of revamping the training ground as well.

Hill added: "I've seen the plans for the future and the new training ground it's an exciting time to be here. I'm really looking forward to the challenge.

"Hopefully I can now try and get a few more games under my belt and next season will see us progress even further as a club.

"New players are coming in and it's an exciting time for everyone connected to the club. I just want to try and give the gaffer a headache.

"I don't know what the starting eleven's going to be, but I'm willing to rise to the challenge again and make it hard for people to take that place off me.''
