YOUNG midfielder Faysal Bettache has committed his future to QPR by signing a new three-year contract.
The 20-year-old will now remain in W12 until at least 2023, with the club also holding an extra year’s option.
Bettache arrived at Rangers in March 2014 from Watford and went on to sign his first professional contract in May 2019 – that following his debut for QPR’s first team in a 3-1 EFL Cup win over Bristol Rovers in August 2018.
Today, Faysal is in the first-team picture and, after putting pen to paper on his new deal, told www.qpr.co.uk: “It feels good that I’m in the gaffer’s (Mark Warburton) plans for the long run – to know that I’m secure at the club for at least three more years.
“The gaffer helps me as much as he can. He tells me what I need to work on and how I’ve been progressing in training.
“I’m working hard every day to get as much time on the pitch as possible. The plan since day one has been to become a regular in the first team and nothing’s changed.”
With a number of players having graduated through QPR’s Academy in recent times to become first-team regulars, Bettache is hoping he can follow the trend set by the likes of Ebere Eze, Ilias Chair and Osman Kakay.
“That shows that it’s worked before,” he added. “It’s something that I’ve got to do now.”
