Former Galway United player Ryan Manning has signed a new contract extension for English Championship side QPR. He is set to stay at Loftus Road until the summer of 2021.
23 year old Ryan Manning has signed a new one year deal with Queens Park Rangers after the club exercised an option to extend his contract.
Manning joined QPR from Galway United in 2015 and has made 82 appearances for the club to date, scoring five goals.
The Galway native has impressed for the hoops so far this season. Director of football for QPR, Les Ferdinand, stated that Ryan and fellow team mate Bright Osayi-Samuel were given contract extensions in “recognition of how well they he have done for us over the past three years”.
Ferdinand continued by saying the pair has “worked incredibly hard to become important members of Mark Warburton’s squad, and as such they are valuable assets to QPR”.
“When you are signing young players the contracts need to be long enough to protect the club while not too long that they can potentially take away their incentive to progress”, expressed Ferdinand.
A further contract extension could be offered to Manning in the near future. The club “will be continuing discussions with Ryan and Bright as we look to extend their deals further”.
Manning, who has yet to be capped at senior level for Ireland, will be hoping for his good form at left back to continue and put him in contention to make Mick McCarthy’s squad for the upcoming playoffs.
