Queens Park Rangers have confirmed on their official club website that 22-year-old winger Olamide Shodipo has been handed a new contract, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2022.
Olamide Shodipo, who has come through the youth academy at Queens Park Rangers, has now been handed a new three-year contract, which will keep him at the club until 2022. Having previously spent time out on loan with Port Vale and Colchester United, the winger looks to have made a good impression on Mark Warburton.
The 22-year-old was involved throughout pre-season and has made one appearance this season before being kept out through injury. Now, however, he is nearing his return to fitness and he has been rewarded with a new deal. Speaking upon the announcement, Warburton praised Shodipo, saying:
“Mide had a really good pre-season; he worked hard and performed well. He was very unfortunate to get the injury that he did but he is well on the road to recovery now and I am delighted for him. This is a great move by the club.
“He’s a player who has a real hunger and desire when he plays. He’s keen to learn and has a great attitude, so he has all the required attributes to do well as a young professional.
“Now his mindset has to be to push on every single day and he showed me during pre-season that he possesses that determination to keep improving.”
Shodipo also spoke upon the confirmation of his new contract, saying that he is determined to repay the faith the club has put in him by handing him a contract extension.
“I’m delighted that the club has shown faith in me, they’ve trusted me and now I want to perform and repay that when I get my opportunity. I’m very grateful.
“The way the team is playing at the moment is amazing. It’s something different to what we have had in the last few years and I hope that we can build on that, continue and do well this season.”
