Ariel Borysiuk could yet have a future at QPR.
West London Sport reports that Rangers boss Ian Holloway has suggested that Borysiuk could be part of his plans for the coming season after all.
The midfielder failed to impress Holloway last season and returned to his native Poland in January to join Lechia Gdańsk on loan.
A permanent move was expected this summer, but Holloway liked what he saw in Saturday’s pre-season friendly at Peterborough and says Borysiuk could be retained.
“I thought Ariel did really well,” said Holloway.
“I had to make some decisions last year and I’ve said to him ‘If you come back and pass it the way I want you to do and run around the pitch a bit…’
“He showed me that he wants to play for this club. What more can I ask? Hopefully that might solve a few things if I can get him in there as well.”
Meanwhile, youngster Ryan Manning has signed a new three-year contract at Loftus Road.
Manning, 20, has impressed since being given a chance in the Rangers first team soon after Holloway’s appointment as manager.
“It’s great reassurance for me,” Manning told QPR’s website.
“Hopefully, in the next three years, we can build something, start finishing at the right end of the table, and then get back to the Premier League.”
