Sahar initially joined the Championship side on a three-month deal at the end of July but he will now stay at Loftus Road until 2nd January.

The 17-year-old has already impressed QPR boss John Gregory, who is delighted to have the Israel international for longer.

"We've been able to sign him until the January transfer window," Gregory told the club's official website. "It is rather longer than we had first anticipated, but we are delighted that Chelsea have given us permission to keep him until then.

"He has already shown us glimpses of his potential in two pre-season friendlies and now we are just looking for him to repeat his goal-scoring prowess in the Championship itself."
