Captain Nedum Onuoha set to leave QPR

NEDUM Onuoha will leave QPR at the end of the season following the completion of his contract, bringing the curtain down on a six-and-a-half year spell with the club.

Onuoha joined the R’s in January 2012 and has gone on to make 223 appearances, scoring eight goals.

The 31-year-old, who has captained the club for the past three seasons, helped the R’s avoid relegation from the Premier League in 2011/12.

The defender was also an integral part of our return to the top flight in 2013/14, culminating in our play-off final victory over Derby County at Wembley.

Onuoha told www.qpr.co.uk: “I want to thank everyone for making me feel welcome from the moment I arrived.

“When I do leave it will feel very different as I’ve spent half of my career here but, inevitably, nothing lasts forever.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to everybody who has supported both myself and the club throughout my time here.

“I’ve met a lot of great people and experienced some of the best moments in my career, while being lucky enough to share those times with lots of great people – players, staff and fans alike.

“Some of my best memories have been under the lights at Loftus Road, where our fans are on top of the players and the opposition can feel the pressure at every angle.

“If we can have more nights like that going forward, I believe real success won’t be too far away.”

QPR boss Ian Holloway added: “Nedum has been a wonderful player and a fantastic servant for QPR.

“He is a brilliant professional who has been great for the development of the younger lads here, offering them guidance and always being there for them, supporting them on and off the pitch.

“He has been a shining example for them too in terms of how to conduct yourself.

“I am sure he has got a lot of years left in him and I wish him all the very best wherever he goes.”
