Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink speaks highly of Queens Park Rangers defender Grant Hall

Queens Park Rangers defender Grant Hall has had a very impressive season.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has told the Kilburn Times that Queens Park Rangers defender Grant Hall is a player who he thinks very highly of.

The 24-year-old defender has been one of the Rangers’ best performers throughout the campaign to date.

Hall broke into QPR’s team back in October, and he has not looked back - establishing his position as the London club’s most reliable defender.

And Hasselbaink is convinced that the former Tottenham Hotspur man has the potential to play at the highest level of the game.

“He’s a young centre half that is really getting to the level he is capable of producing now," the Dutch manager said. 

“We really think highly of him, but there is still a lot of improvement for him to make in his game.

“He needs regular games, and he needs situations which will test him.

“We definitely feel he will be get to the top, though. He has a lot of ability.

Hall’s quality was highlighted yesterday evening, when QPR took on Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Although Rangers could only pick up a 1-1 draw in Yorkshire, Hall’s performance at the heart of their defence was very impressive.

The powerful centre back dealt with Wednesday’s attacking threat well, as QPR picked up an impressive point.

QPR scored their goal through Daniel Toszer, before Adthe Nuhiu struck an equaliser for Carlos Carvalhal's men.

The R’s are now in 13th place in the Championship table, with their next match coming against Birmingham City at Loftus Road on Saturday.
