Get West London understands that Queens Park Rangers are still discussing Jamie Mackie’s future with the player. His deal is due to expire in June, although the club do have the option to extend that by one-year. Both parties remain in discussions over the possibility of keeping the player at Loftus Road.

The 31-year-old has suffered with his injury problems over the last few years. He certainly fits the DNA for the type of player that manager Ian Holloway would love to keep on board, however there is still some clear doubt over where Mackie will be playing his football next season.

In total, the Scot made 19 appearances for QPR, scoring once, which came in the January away victory over play-off side Reading at the Madejski Stadium. He made the move to the Hoops in 2015 on a two-year deal from Nottingham Forest and that contract length is rapidly running out.

Only a few month ago Holloway spoke of his desire to keep Mackie at the football club,

“Of course, Jamie is someone I want to have with me next season.

“Jamie is an absolutely fantastic fella and I’m really enjoying working with him. I don’t want to lose anybody.”

Several players are out of contract this summer and are in a similar situation to that of Mackie. No retained list has been issued by the Sky Bet Championship club, and won’t until Holloway speaks to the players in question and makes some decisions. Mackie is very much a fans’ favourite and Loftus Road and they certainly hope he plays on the famous grey and white shirt sometime soon.
