Alex Smithies has signed a new deal with QPR, ending speculation about his future.
GetWestLondon revealed earlier in the week that the former Huddersfield goalkeeper was set to sign a new deal and the club have tied him down until the end of the 2019/20 season.
And the 26-year-old is looking to make strides and become a Premier League player with QPR.
“I want QPR to make strides forward over the next three-and-a-half years, and I want to be a part of that,” he said.
“The club have shown they want to sign young, up-and-coming players who want to kick on, and I feel like I still fall into that category.”
He added: “I am delighted to extend my stay at QPR by another two years. I am really enjoying my time here and am looking forward to the future.
“Every goalkeeper wants to be playing week in, week out and thankfully I am doing that at the moment.
“I have got some tough competition behind me in Matt Ingram, and there are other goalkeepers at the club who are pushing hard as well.
“It’s not an easy thing to stay in a team for a whole season, but that’s certainly what I am aiming to do.”
Smithies also paid tribute to the supporters, who have backed him during his time with the club, after he joined in 2015.
“As a goalkeeper, there are ups and downs during a season but the fans have been fantastic with me,” he said.
“I am loving my time here - when you’ve got thousands of fans singing your name, it can’t help but fill you with confidence.”
