QPR are close to securing a deal to extend Angel Rangel’s contract, according to West London Sport.
The 36-year-old signed a short-term deal with the Hoops in August and that contract is due to expire in January.
Rangel has impressed for Steve McClaren’s side since his move and has played 14 games in all competitions, chipping in with two goals. He has played a key part in QPR tightening up their defence after a poor start to the season.
His form has caught the attention of fellow Championship side Nottingham Forest, but it appears QPR are set to secure his services until the end of this campaign at least.
Rangel left Swansea City at the end of the season after their relegation from the Premier League. He joined the Swans in 2007 and played for them for 11 years, racking up a total of 374 appearances.
The Spanish right-back became a fans’ favourite at the Liberty Stadium and helped them win the League One title in 2008, the Championship Play-Offs in 2011 and the League Cup in 2013.
Prior to moving to Wales, Rangel had spells at Girona, Sant Andreu and Terrassa. It was Roberto Martinez who signed him for Swansea and he turned out to be an inspired signing by him.
Rangel has proved that he is not ready to hang up his boots just yet and his experience has proved very useful for QPR this season. They will be happy to tie him down on a longer contract and fend off interest from Forest.
