Queens Park Rangers striker DJ Campbell claims he wants to stay at the club for the rest of his career, following his summer move from Blackpool.

The 29-year-old scored 14 goals for The Tangerines last season, but couldn't prevent the club from relegation from the Barclays Premier League.

Following a short illness, Campbell netted his first goal for Rangers in the 3-0 defeat of Wolverhampton Wanderers, and after tasting the winning feeling for the first time in a Hoops shirt feels his future lies with the west Londoners.

"Could I finish my career here? I'd love to," Campbell said. "It's a club that means a lot to me, I've got ties with this club from years and years ago. I was born literally two minutes over the road.

"It was always in my mind. I always thought I'd love to come back to QPR if I had the chance. Thankfully it's worked out well.


"I had other clubs in the summer, maybe people would have said you should have gone there or here, but I'm 29, and after the season last year I thought this was the right time to come back, rather than moving or staying up north,

"I wanted to be with my family, and obviously my family were delighted that I chose QPR and I'm sure they knew that I was going to choose QPR."

Elsewhere, the club have agreed terms to allow defender Clint Hill to join Nottingham Forest on an emergency loan.

Forest boss Steve McLaren said: "Wwe're delighted to have agreed terms with QPR for Clint. He has great experience and will add to our defensive options."
