DONE DEAL: West Ham striker Jordan Hugill delighted with QPR move

QPR have signed West Ham striker Jordan Hugill.

Hugill has joined QPR on a season-long loan.

“I'm ready to go," he told the club's website. “I want to get my head down and make my mark here, which is something I need to do for my career.

“The gaffer (Mark Warburton) knows exactly what I'm about. He sees me as a perfect fit for his team and, as soon as I met him, he had me straight away. He's a brilliant man and I'm happy to come to QPR and help the club."

Hugill added: “I think we're going to have a really good go this season, and I'm looking forward to the challenge that's coming.

“I think I can be a focal point up front – the link-up man who teams are looking for these days. I'm in the best condition for myself, and I'm really looking forward to the season starting.

“To be wanted again and play football was the main thing for me, the manager made me feel wanted and went out of his way to make me feel welcome. Hopefully I can repay that faith."

R's boss Warburton said: “Jordan is someone who really can lead the line.

“We've had to be patient and wait for the right forwards to come along. It's been great to bring Jan Mlakar in from Brighton, who is a younger striker, and Jordan is a more senior player given his experience in this division.

“He arrives with real quality and, alongside Jan, I'm hopeful we have a potent attacking force now."
