QPR boss Mark Warburton has indicated that the club will look to keep Tom Carroll at Loftus Road.
The former Tottenham midfielder, 28, was signed on a one-year deal by Warburton last summer.
He impressed for the R’s but has not featured since suffering a knee injury in January, although he has been an unused substitute of late.
Warburton is keen to keep him though and has revealed that Rangers director of football Les Ferdinand is discussing a deal to retain Carroll beyond the end of the season.
“The stats tell you Tom was doing very, very well for us,” Warburton told West London Sport.
“He had a consistent run of games and level of performance, so I’m sure chats are ongoing now with Les and the representatives.
“Tom is a very talented player, good character – well liked by the playing squad – and he’s shown his quality in his performances for QPR, so those discussions are certainly ongoing.”
Warburton has enjoyed a promising second season at the helm, guiding Rangers to a ninth-placed finish and giving their fans optimism that there could be a promotion challenge next term.
Warburton said: “It was a really pleasing end to the season to get three more points and take us to 68, which is 10 more than last year. I’m delighted for the players.
“It’s not a huge success, because we haven’t won anything, but we’re only two points off of seventh and the players deserve so much credit for the way they’ve worked hard and shown character.”
