Defender Chris Paul signs new deal

QPR youngster Chris Paul has signed a one-year contract extension at Loftus Road.

The 19 year-old defender, who moved to Rangers from Tottenham Hotspur last year, has agreed a new deal until the summer of 2018, following in the footsteps of fellow youngster Osman Kakay, who put pen to paper on a similar extension last week.

Speaking to www.qpr.co.uk, Paul - who is yet to make his First Team debut, but has featured on the bench for QPR this season - expressed his delight at agreeing a new deal, commenting: "It's really pleasing to get the deal signed.

"Since I came in from Spurs, things have progressed well for me on a personal level.

"The old gaffer (Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink) liked me and I was in and around the First Team squad, and now there's another opportunity for me to impress the new gaffer (Ian Holloway)."

He added: "Coming into a club like QPR and seeing young players being given a chance is fantastic for someone like myself.

"We're all learning all of the time and there's a good feeling amongst the youngsters here.

"I've been on the bench a couple of times and now the next step is to try and force my way into the team and make my debut.

"I just need to keep pushing, keep trying to impress, and try and take any opportunities that come my way."

Coming into a club like QPR and seeing young players being given a chance is fantastic.
