The 26-year-old has been a key member of QPR's squad that secured Championship survival. He played 33 times in the Championship this season, keeping 10 clean sheets as the Hoops retained their second tier status.

Championship survival has been secured, and now Clarke-Salter has spoken of ambitions of reaching the Premier League with the West London club. He did not entirely rule out a departure, but did state his happiness at Loftus Road.

Speaking to Football League World, he said: "When I left Chelsea I was 24, I'm 26 now. I'm now trying to build my own legacy outside of Chelsea and trying to build up my career and hopefully progress a lot with QPR.

"The ambition for me personally is to be a Premier League player eventually, something I believe I have the capability to do. Hopefully, I can do that with QPR, the club is one the up and there are some exciting times ahead."

He added: "I don't have Twitter or anything so I don't see any of the rumours, people might send it to me and stuff but I wasn't really interested in anything at that point, it was just about securing safety of QPR and playing as well as I can.

"Whatever happens in the summer, we'll see. I don't have a crystal ball but I'm really happy at QPR and hopefully, we can have a good season next year."
