QPR are considering signing veteran defender Clint Hill on a free transfer, according to West London Sport.
The experienced centre-back has been looking for a club after leaving Scottish giants Rangers in the summer. He played for the QPR development squad yesterday against Bolton, a game in which former Real Madrid and Roma striker Julio Baptista played in for Hill’s opponents.
Hill, 37, has been training with the R’s who may offer him a deal, amidst injury concerns in defence. He spent 6 years at Loftus Road before being released and joining Rangers in the SPL in the summer of 2016, whom he left this summer.
Hill has had a long career spanning back nearly 20 years. He was a product of the Tranmere Rovers academy, where he played over 140 games before joining Oldham Athletic in 2002. He had a season with Oldham before Stoke City swooped in. He spent 5 years at Stoke before opting to join Crystal Palace under Neil Warnock. He played over 100 games for Crystal Palace.
Hill then made the move across London to join QPR in 2010, joining up with Neil Warnock once again. Since then, Hill has played nearly 200 matches for the R’s. He also had a short loan spell at Nottingham Forest in 2011. Hill became a fan’s favorite at Loftus Road and a reliable defender in both the Championship and the Premier League.
Clint Hill turns 38 next month. It is still yet to be seen whether he will be offered a contract or not, but QPR are said to be considering a shock move to bring the veteran back to the club.
