QPR veteran Shaun Derry has admitted that he is considering a move to fellow Championship side Millwall this summer, but has insisted he will remain loyal to the Loftus Road outfit as long as he is in the squad on a regular basis, Sky Sports reports.

Derry has been linked with a loan move to Millwall recently and has said that it could be a tempting offer if he is given the chance to feature more regularly in the starting XI.

The 35-year-old had to be patient in waiting for his chance to shine under Harry Redknapp last season and he has admitted that that the pair have spoken about the player’s future at the club.

“There is a link there, but obviously I played last night for 30 minutes and enjoyed playing.

“I’m 35 now, I’m not 25 and a guy who likes to sit on the bench.

“I spent quite a lot of last year on the bench watching from the sidelines, and I’m a footballer who likes to play football.

“If there was to be an opportunity for me to play elsewhere then that is something I’d really have to look into quite deeply, but as it stands at the moment I am a QPR player and a very committed one.”

Derry has said that he still has plenty to give and does not feel as though he is nearing the end of the line just yet, but he has accepted that he won’t be starting as many games as he used to.

“Me and Harry have had a frank discussion last night and, although I am a QPR player, I am very open to playing football.

“I don’t want to be wasting my final years, not that I feel I am anywhere near the scrapheap, but for the short-term playing games is really at the forefront of my mind

“I really missed playing a number of games last season. If, and it is a big if, I was to be given an opportunity at Millwall or anywhere else for that matter, it is something I would definitely have to look into.”
