QPR defender Max Ehmer has signed a contract extension that will keep him at Loftus Road until 2016.

The 20-year-old German has been at QPR since 2003 and progressed through the youth system, although he is yet to make his first-team debut for the Rs. Ehmer has played on loan at both Yeovil and Preston and, after training with the first-team in pre-season, he is now hoping to make the step up into manager Mark Hughes' squad on a regular basis

"I'm really pleased," he told qpr.co.uk "It's an amazing feeling to be signing a new deal at such an exciting time in the club's future."
