QPR play-off hero reportedly agrees new deal - The right move?

QPR 1

Bobby Zamora is set to sign a new one-year deal at Loftus Road.

He probably couldn't believe his luck at Wembley earlier this year, when Richard Keogh gifted Zamora possession inside the penalty box for the 33-year-old to slot home the winner against Derby County.

That goal has ensured Zamora's name will go down in Queens Park Rangers history, as it took the Rs back up to the Premier League at the first time of asking - where Harry Redknapp will hope his side can stay for the long term.

At one point, however, it looked as though the striker's play-off final heroics would not be enough to keep him at the club.

Zamora's contract expired this summer and there was first talk of him not being offered a new deal, before he was said to have rejected QPR's offer of a paycut.

Now, though, the 33-year-old appears to be ready to sign a new deal at Loftus Road, with Sky Sports reporting that he is set to put pen to paper on a one-year contract.

The right move? Very much so, it seems.

Zamora has Premier League experience to boot and proved his ability to score goals of great importance at Wembley. Apart from the former Tottenham and Fulham man, moreover, QPR only really have Charlie Austin to call on, with Loic Remy expected to leave the club.

And, even if Remy does stay, Zamora will add strength in depth in an area where the Rs struggled last season, scoring just 60 goals in 46 league games.

A fee has also reportedly been agreed for Kolbeinn Sigthorsson, meaning Redknapp is one striker away from completing a perfect set of four. That striker should either be Remy or another signing. Either way, Zamora staying is one step towards potential Premier League survival.
