Derry has been linked with a loan switch to Millwall and he says he would have to consider his options carefully if he was given the opportunity to go somewhere and feature more heavily in the first XI.

The 35-year-old had to wait patiently for his opportunities at Loftus Road last season and has spoken with manager Harry Redknapp about his future.

Speaking to Sky Sports News about the connection to Millwall, Derry said: "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 does not feel his career is drawing towards a finish just yet but he does accept that at this stage it would not be good for him to spend a lot of time as a substitute.

Asked if Redknapp had suggested that his future might lie elsewhere, Derry added: "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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
