It turns out Richard Dunne hasn't retired

Reports of Richard Dunne's retirement have been greatly exaggerated.

After a tough, but creditable season in the Premier League, considering how bad QPR were and Dunne's age, we were surprised to see reports emerging late last night that the Dubliner had decided to retire. The former Irish international surely has at least another season of football left before walking away from playing.

It turns out that's exactly how Dunne feels, and he won't be hanging up his boots, as numerous reports suggested. QPR's head of media and communications, Ian Taylor, confirmed this morning that the Honey Monster is hungry for more football.

Dunne will be on the look-out for a new club though when his contract with QPR expires at the end of this month. The defender, who will turn 36 in September, played 80 times for Ireland, scoring 8 goals, before retiring from international football last year.
