QPR midfielder Dyer signs new contract

Rangers offer new deals to Clint Hill, Akos Buzsaky and Radek Cerny too

QPR midfielder Kieron Dyer suffered an injury seven minutes into his debut for the club

Queens Park Rangers have confirmed that midfielder Kieron Dyer has signed a new contract at Loftus Road.

Dyer, 33, has extended his deal with the Barclays Premier League club to the end of the 2012/13 campaign.

He suffered a nightmare start to his Rangers career having signed on a free after leaving West Ham United last summer, picking up an ankle injury seven minutes into his debut last August.

Dyer failed to play again for the rest of the season after injuring ligaments in his foot, but Rangers manager Mark Hughes hopes he will be available for pre-season training.

According to the club's official website, QPR have also offered new deals to defender Clint Hill, midfielder Akos Buzsaky and goalkeeper Radek Cerny.

All three are now in negotiations with the club, who are hoping they follow Dyer and Jamie Mackie in agreeing to stay in west London after QPR secured their place in the top flight next season.

Rangers have confirmed eight players will not be staying on when their contracts expire at the end of June.

Peter Ramage, Danny Gabbidon, Danny Shittu, Fitz Hall, Gary Borrowdale, Lee Cook, Rowan Vine and Patrick Agyemang will now all be on the lookout for a new club.

"The club would like to thank each and every player for their contribution to QPR during their time here and wish them every success for the future," said a QPR statement.
