Queens Park Rangers midfielder Michael Doughty has signed a two-year extension to his contract.
The 22-year-old's previous deal was due to end next summer but he is now under contract at Loftus Road until 2018.
A product of the Rangers youth system, Doughty has played 11 first-team games for the club, seven of them this term.
"I have been given more opportunities than I have been used to previously and now I really feel part of the first-team set-up," he told the club website.
Doughty has had loan spells with Gillingham, Stevenage, St Johnstone, Aldershot and Crawley.
"He serves as a fantastic example for the younger age groups here," said QPR director of football Les Ferdinand.
"He is proof that a pathway from the academy to the first team exists. My aim is to ensure more players follow in his footsteps."
