QPR are close to finalising a deal to extend Angel Rangel’s contract, West London Sport reports.
Rangel, who recently turned 36, was signed on a short-term deal by the club in August because of Darnell Furlong’s injury.
Furlong has now recovered from a knee problem but Rangel has performed so well in his absence that Rangers are keen to extend his contract, which is due to expire at the end of the month.
West London Sport reports that QPR are set to meet with Rangel’s representatives this evening, potentially to finalise the deal.
Nottingham Forest are reportedly interested in Rangel, who moved to west London as a free agent after being released by Swansea City.
He spent 11 years at the Welsh club, where he remains a hugely popular figure among Swans fans.
He has quickly also become popular at Loftus Road too, playing a key role in a dramatic improvement in Rangers’ results.
Steve McClaren’s side lost their first four league games under the former England boss and suffered a humiliating 7-1 defeat at West Bromwich Albion in August.
They have been much tighter at the back since then, with Rangel playing a key role at right-back in McClaren’s well organised defence.
