QPR Official Site: Heidar Pens New Deal

In-form striker Heidar Helguson has penned a new deal at Loftus Road.

The 34 year-old Icelandic international, who has bagged seven goals in twelve appearances in the Premier League this season, has been rewarded for his stunning start to the campaign with a new deal which runs to the summer of 2013.

Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, a delighted Neil Warnock said: "I fought tooth and nail to keep Heidar here over the summer, because I knew he could be a threat for us in the Premier League.

"He's proved time and again what a good player he is.

"He's more than earned this new deal - no-one deserves it more.

"He's a credit to his profession and it couldn't happen to a nicer lad."

Helguson has now scored 26 goals in the famous Blue and White Hoops and Warnock added: "We know he's not going to play every game at his age, which is why we need to add to our options in that department.

"It's something we're working on and we're quite hopeful we'll be successful in our pursuit."

Warnock also revealed he hopes to tie down a few more of his current crop to new deals in the coming weeks, adding: "With a little bit of luck hopefully we can get one or two more of the lads that are here to sign new contracts over the next few weeks. QPR

Adel Taarabt and Armand Traore have been called up to represent Morocco and Senegal respectively in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Taarabt has been named in the Moroccan squad for the showcase in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea, whilst Traore has been called up to a strong Senegal squad.

Both players will join up with their respective countries ahead of the tournament which starts on January 21st and runs through to February 12th.

Neil Warnock told www.qpr.co.uk: "Unfortunately we're going to lose Armand and Adel after the FA Cup tie at Milton Keynes.

"Whilst we're all hoping they return as soon as possible, I fancy Senegal to reach the Final of the tournament, which would mean we'd be without Armand until mid-February. QPR

Teamtalk - League One - Rowlands returns to QPR

Martin Rowlands has returned to QPR following the end of his loan spell at Wycombe.

Former Chairboys midfielder Rowlands returned to Adams Park after a 14-year absence in late September, agreeing a three-month deal at the League One club.
However, his stay in Buckinghamshire was blighted by niggling injuries and the 32-year-old made just eight league outings for Gary Waddock's side, two as a substitute, and one FA Cup appearance.
His last run out came from the bench during the 3-1 home win over Exeter on Boxing Day.

Wed 28 Dec 2011

Dons boss Karl Robinson has hinted that Angelo Balanta may play a prominent part in their New Year's Eve League 1 encounter at Brentford.

It was at Brentford's Griffin Park that an ankle injury to Balanta resulted in surgery and forced the Columbian-born winger to sit out four months of the season. In that game, which the Dons won 2-0, Balanta scored a spectacular half-volley and was a constant handful for the Brentford defence.

The injury to on-loan QPR forward Balanta, which denied Robinson of a key player during a long stretch of the season, remains fresh in the manager's mind and he believes the talented player, who has spent recent weeks coming off the bench, has something to prove at Brentford.

Speaking to the media Robinson said: "Angelo might get his chance against Brentford; I thought he was outstanding there last year, he scored a worldy, and then someone injured him. He's got to put some demons to bed; he's got a lot of things to prove so I can't wait to see him."

The New Year's Eve date at Brentford is currently set to be Balanta's last game for MK Dons as his loan spell away from parent club QPR, who the Dons face in the FA Cup with Budweiser Third Round in over a week's time, runs out although Robinson has expressed his desire to keep the 21-year-old at stadiummk.
