​DONE DEAL: QPR sign ex-Arsenal winger Willock from Benfica

Queens Park Rangers have secured the signing of former Arsenal star Chris Willock.

The forward has signed from Benfica for an undisclosed fee.

Willock will have a COVID-19 test before he can join with the rest of the team for training.

The 22-year-old has represented England at nearly every youth level, and will be hoping to kickstart his career in the Championship.

He said after signing: "I am really excited.

"I can't wait to meet my new team-mates and to get started. I am really happy to be here.

"The team plays good football and I think that will suit me.

"Growing up and being taught at Arsenal's academy and later going on to Benfica, it's in my DNA. I have been moulded to play in that way, so I think this suits the club and it suits me."
