QPR defender Clint Hill has signed a new one year deal at Loftus Road.
Hill, who skippered Rangers to promotion back to the Premier League with victory over Derby County in the Championship Play-Off Final just over a month ago, today (Wednesday) put pen to paper a one year contract extension until the summer of 2015.
Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk
, the popular R’s defender expressed his delight at extending his stay in W12, commenting: “I was always hopeful that I’d get a new deal, so to get it sorted so soon is great.
“I’ve enjoyed some great experiences at QPR over the last four years, I’m settled here, and I’m excited about being part of this club for another season.”
Hill added: “Every year I always think it will be tough to keep my place in the side, and this season I’ve brought myself round to thinking that I won’t play as much and new players will come in. Maybe I’ll need to take on a different role this season.
“The most important thing is the club and how that progresses. I want to take a keen interest in that.”
Hill joined QPR in the summer of 2010 as a free agent following his release from Crystal Palace.
He has since made 150 appearances in all competitions, winning the Supporters Player of the Year accolades in 2011/12 and 2012/13.
Hill admits his success so far with Rangers has only heightened his affection for the club, adding: “It’s frightening to think I’ve played 150 games and been involved in some of the biggest ones of the club’s history.
“I’ve surpassed everything I thought I’d ever achieve here and that’s why this club has gripped me so much.”
