Since ar­riv­ing at Lof­tus Road on a free trans­fer in 2010, Hill has made al­most 200 ap­pear­ances in a QPR shirt.

The 37-year-old’s con­tract is up at the end of the sea­son, but Hill in­sists he has plenty more to give.

“I def­i­nitely still think I have a bit left to of­fer as a player,” he said.

“I’m feel­ing as good as I ever have, so I can def­i­nitely go on for an­other year.

“I’m con­fi­dent I can do a job at this level, I think I have more than proved that over the years.”
