Faurlin pens new contract extension.


Much earlier today the fantastic news that Alejandro Faurlin has committed himself to the club by signing a contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2014.

Faurlin signed from Institute in the Summer of 2009 by Jim Magilton for an undisclosed fee that is believed to be a club record fee.
Faurlin took time to bed into the side but soon became an integral figure in the R's midfield and after playing 44 games in all competitions last year, scoring one goal, he went on to deservedly scoop the Players Player of the Year and Supporters Player of the Year gongs at the end of season awards dinner.

Faurlin continued where he left off at the heart of the R's midfield with his new partner in crime Shaun Derry. only injury at Ipswich has halted the Argentines progress this season but he is expected to be fit once the International break is over and be in contention for the game against Norwich on the 16th October.

Neil Warnock told the Official Club Website "It's the best signing I've made - I couldn't be more delighted that he's penned a two year extension. I genuinely believe he can get better and better and that's saying something, because he's already a truly outstanding player."


In news we missed out on last week, Rowan Vine has joined Hull city on a months loan and Josh Parker has also gone got on a months loan to Northampton Town.
