​Henry opts for QPR stay

Championship QPR midfielder Karl Henry has taken up the option of a further year's contract.

The 32-year-old told the club website: "I'm pleased to have taken up my year's option. I'm looking forward to the challenge ahead with this group of players.

"Hopefully we can bounce back from last year's disappointments and give the fans something positive to shout about."

Rangers' director of football Les Ferdinand said: "Karl showed last season, in a difficult campaign for us, what he can bring to the side, so we're pleased he's taken his option up.

"Experienced players are going to be key for us in the Championship this season, especially with the younger signings we've already signed this summer.

"Karl's heart, energy, desire and quality will be really important for us this coming season."
