Darnell Furlong is considered as one of Queens Park Rangers' best up and coming prospects.

Queens Park Rangers defender Darnell Furlong has confirmed to the Northampton Chronicle that he wants to extend his loan spell at Sixfields. 

Furlong signed for Northampton Town on a month's loan at the start of September, and he has immediately been thrown into the starting line-up by Chris Wilder.

The youngster has coped well with the demands of playing regular football at League Two level, too, and he is keen on staying with the Cobblers for longer.

“It’s not fully my decision and I have to listen to what Northampton and QPR say, but it’d be great to stay for a bit longer," Furlong told the Northampton Chronicle

“It feels very real being out here. Sometimes playing for the under-21s can feel a bit put on and it’s not about the result, instead it’s about learning and developing, but here it’s just about the three points, winning and climbing the table and that’s what I’m learning.

“I like to get forward when I can but I realise that now I’m in a proper league and playing for three points, I can’t just go bombing on all the time like I usually would in a youth-team game so I’ve got to be a bit more sensible and disciplined but that’s why I’m here – to learn things like that."

Northampton have been unbeaten ever since Furlong gained a place in their first team, with their latest victory being a very impressive one over promotion chasing Wycombe Wanderers.

Furlong has added solidarity to their defence, but he has also given them an outlet going forward and has settled in with his new teammates very well.

The 19-year-old has already made played five times for Wilder's side, as he gets to grips with featuring regularly in a competitive environment.

Furlong will hope that he will return to QPR a better player for this loan experience, with the hopes still high for his future at Loftus Road.
