Yeah, looking forward to having him back next season. He usually plays on the left though, and with Lennon being pretty injury prone (though not so much this season) a backup for him would be nice.
I actually think he has been playing on the right for QPR. I heard he made 14 successful dribble against Wigan at the weekend which is a unbelievable amount. With the way I think AVB wants us to eventually play (inverted wingers), Townsend could well be crucial next year.

Oh really? Well then fair enough, always helpful to have wingers that can play on both sides. Inverted wingers is an interesting prospect, we've always been a team that relies on natural width really. Though we've been playing 4-2-3-1, AVB has a preference for 4-3-3 so it'll be interesting to see where Bale fits in if he does eventually shift to that formation. On the left? On the right? In behind?
