VERSATILE German-born ace Max Ehmer has committed his long-term future to QPR.
The 20 year-old, who has been on the club’s books for nine years, has signed an extension to the summer of 2016.
Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, a delighted Ehmer said: “I’m really pleased. It’s an amazing feeling to be signing a new deal at such an exciting time in the club’s future.
“This summer has been my first proper involvement with the first team and I’ve enjoyed every moment.
“It’s a great place to be around at the moment – everything you could ask for as a young professional.”
Ehmer initially joined QPR as a schoolboy at the age of 11.
He featured regularly at under-16 and under-18 level, skippering the latter, before going on to represent South West Germany at under-18 level.
Ehmer spent time on loan at League One outfit Preston North End last season, making seven starts and two substitute appearances, predominantly as a centre-half.
Earlier in the campaign, he made 28 appearances in all competitions for Yeovil Town, returning to Huish Park after spending five months on loan there at the end of the 2010/11 season.
Ehmer added: “I’ve been in and around the first team over the last few years and now I want to step that up a level.
“Any experience I can have at first team level this season will be beneficial.
“Aside from that, the under-21 league will be a big opportunity for me to develop further and that can only help in the long term.”
