Adel Taarabt has signed a three-year contract extension with QPR which will see his deal with Mark Hughes’ side run until 2016.
The Morocco international, who played a key role in the Londoners’ ascent to the Premier League in 2010-11, made 28 appearances in all competitions as they avoided relegation last term, scoring two goals.
“I am very pleased to have signed this new contract,” he told the club’s official website.
“When I first arrived here I honestly thought it would just be for a short period but I love this club and the people here have really helped me and I am very happy to be here.
“I had a tough start to the season last year, but I worked hard and I have really enjoyed it under Mark Hughes.
“The club is getting bigger and bigger, and with a new training ground and talk of a new stadium it is very exciting.
“In the time I have been here QPR’s ambition has changed. Last year the aim was to stay in the Premier League.
“We achieved this and now we want to progress and improve. Nobody is speaking about what we can achieve but we really want to move up the Premier League table.”
Taarabt’s renewal follows the summer arrivals of Park Ji-Sung, Robert Green, Samba Diakite, Ryan Nelsen, Andrew Johnson and on-loan Manchester United defender Fabio da Silva.
