London - QPR striker Bobby Zamora was rewarded for firing his club back into the Premier League as he signed a new one-year contract on Wednesday.

Zamora scored the last-gasp goal that earned Harry Redknapp's side a 1-0 win over Derby in the Championship play-off final in May.

The 33-year-old was out of contract following his Wembley heroics and it seemed he may not join QPR in the top-flight as he held talks with other clubs including Championship team Millwall.

But former Tottenham and West Ham star Zamora, whose winner against Derby was worth an estimated 80 million in additional revenue for QPR, has now agreed a 12-month contract extension.

"I'm over the moon. I've had an up-and-down time at QPR. I started off really well but then picked up a couple of injuries and didn't perform as well as I wanted to," Zamora told QPR's website.

"But at the end of last year, after coming back following injury, I thought whenever I was called upon to do a job, I did it well."

Zamora has made 59 appearances since joining QPR from west London rivals Fulham, scoring 11 times.
