QPR star looks set to sign new deal

Massimo Luongo is set to sign a new contract at QPR.

West London Sport report that Luongo, 24, is close to agreeing terms over a new deal at Loftus Road.

It follows recent discussions with the club, who are keen for the Australian midfielder to commit his long-term future.

Luongo has impressed since being signed from Swindon Town in 2015. His current deal is due to expire in 2018.

Rangers are also keen for Alex Smithies, whose contract also expires in 2018, to extend his contract following recent reports that the goalkeeper is attracting interest from other clubs.

Smithies has been in outstanding form for Ian Holloway’s side this season, winning them points with crucial saves on a number of occasions.

QPR have been determined to tie their best players to new contracts.

Darnell Furlong, Ryan Manning and a number of other R’s youngsters have signed new deals this season.

And while discussions with Smithies and Luongo have progressed well, the club decided to sell Tjaronn Chery to Chinese Super League outfit Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng when talks with the Dutch playmaker stalled.

It averted the possibility of Chery seeing out his contract and then leaving on a Bosman free transfer at the end of next season.
