QPR to hold off contract talks

Updated: April 3, 2012

Manager Mark Hughes has confirmed that QPR will not be holding contract talks with players as the club focuses on picking up the points necessary for Premier League survival.

While Hogan Ephraim was recently given a one-year extension to ensure there was no chance of the 24 year old leaving in the summer on a free transfer there are still a number of other players who will soon set to be out of contract, including Clint Hill, Akos Buzsaky and Radek Cerny however talks have yet to talk place.

Hughes however has admitted that he is in no rush to open contract talks as he feels the club has more pressing matters to concentrate on for the moment.

“In the case of Hogan Ephraim we felt we wanted to protect the club’s long-term interests,” Hughes told British media.

The Welshman finished by stating:  “With the more senior players I’m not yet in a position to have those types of conversations with them.  There are a number of players with situations to be resolved but they understand that at this moment in time our focus is on the games coming up.”
