Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink makes honest admission about Junior Hoilett's future at Queens Park Rangers


Queens Park Rangers winger Junior Hoilett's contract at Loftus Road expires in the summer.

Queens Park Rangers manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has admitted to the Kilburn Times that he has very little idea about where Junior Hoilett’s future lies.

Hoilett’s contract at QPR expires in the summer, but he has been one of the club’s key players since Hasselbaink took charge.

The Canadian international is enjoying his best run of form at Loftus Road since joining, despite the uncertainty over where he will be playing next season.

And Hasselbaink admits that he has been very impressed by Hoilett, but he was not prepared to make any assurances over the skilful wide man’s future.

“Junior’s application and commitment has been tremendous on and off the ball, that includes in training and in games,” the Dutch manager said.

“He’s a very talented player and I’ve been really happy with the way he has been playing. I’m not sure what will happen with him.”

Hoilett’s time at QPR appeared to be over last summer, and he was rarely picked by previous boss Chris Ramsey.

However, Hasselbaink’s appointment has given the 25-year-old a new lease of life and he has managed to score five goals in his last 14 appearances.

If QPR could keep Hoilett around it would be a signal of their intent, as they look to build a squad capable of achieving promotion next term.

Hoilett is one of nine QPR players whose contracts expire in the summer, meaning that big changes could be set to occur at Loftus Road in the forthcoming months.
