Ian Holloway wants Jamie Mackie to be with him at QPR next season.
The Super Hoops have the option to automatically trigger a one-year extension on Mackie’s contract which they have not yet exercised.
There seem no barriers between the manager and his player to getting a deal done: the fan’s favourite is desperate to stay on and Holloway doesn’t want to see his promising squad break up.
“Of course, Jamie Mackie is someone I want to have with me next season,” he said.
“Jamie is an absolutely fantastic fella and I’m really enjoying working with him. I don’t want to lose anybody.
“People are in and out of contract. Now’s not the time to talk about that. I’ve got a lot of tough decisions to make.
“Hopefully they keep trying to please me, which is how I want it. These days the manager keeps trying to please the players so they don’t get sacked.
All R’s fans can do is patiently wait for news of an extension before Mackie's contract expires at the end of June.
