Fulham midfielder can’t answer if QPR stay is a possibility

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

QPR loan hit Stefan Johansen reckons he can’t supply any answers on where he will be plying his trade next season.

The Norwegian international signed off with a goal as the R’s beat Luton Town 3-1 on the final day of the Championship campaign.

Johansen scored three goals and claimed two assists in 21 outings for Mark Warburton’s team after a January switch from Fulham.

“I don’t know what the situation is with me yet, that’s something to be decided,” said the former Celtic midfielder. “I have one more year on my contract at Fulham.

“Without doubt I can say how much I enjoyed my time here.”

Warburton has already stated he would like to keep all four loan signings – Johansen, Charlie Austin, Sam Field and Jordy de Wijs. They helped QPR go from 20th at the end of the year to a ninth-place finish, their best since they won promotion to the top flight in 2014.

“I hope very much we can, but you never know, and you’ve got to make sure that you have alternatives,” said Warburton.

“I can’t speak highly enough about the contribution they have made.”

Rangers have signed Yeovil striker Alfie Lloyd, 18, for an undisclosed fee. He has penned a three-year contract.
