QPR manager Mark Warburton hopes to keep Hull City defender Jordy de Wijs at Loftus Road beyond the summer.

The former PSV Eindhoven defender left the KCOM Stadium on loan for west London in the January transfer window, and after initially struggling with injury, de Wijs has become a regular for the Rs helping the club secure a top-half finish.

De Wijs’ temporary deal with Rangers does have a clause for Warburton’s side to make the deal permanent next month, something the ex-Rangers and Nottingham Forest boss hopes will be exercised.

“With Charlie, Stefan, Jordy and Sam we have been very lucky,” Warburton said of his four January loan arrivals Stefan Johansen, Charlie Austin and Sam Field.

“They have adapted to our style of play and it suits their games and they have suited us perfectly,” he told West London Sport.

That doesn’t often happen.

“You can get loans where it is difficult and you have young players who can’t adapt, but in this case it has worked out really well for us.

“They have embraced the way we play. They are footballers who want to get on the ball, be brave and play forward.

“All these things you hear managers say, they sound like the same old rhetoric, but the fact is that every party benefited.

“Do they enjoy coming to work to play for QPR? I think the answer is yes.

“I hope very much we can (sign them) but you never know and you always have to have alternatives.

“But I can’t speak highly enough of the contribution all of them have made and the way the rest of the squad have responded. Let’s see what the summer does.”
