Newcastle midfielder Hendrick happy grabbing Newcastle chance

Newcastle United midfielder Jeff Hendrick is happy with his move to QPR.

Hendrick has been informed that he is not part of Eddie Howe's plans at Newcastle and after a move to their local rivals Middlesbrough failed to materialise, a move to QPR was confirmed.

“It's been a bit of a crazy birthday, just waiting for this to happen, but I am really excited,“ Hendrick told the QPR website, as he toasted his birthday on deadline day with a move.

“I have been following the team throughout this season and you are in a good position in the league. Hopefully, I can come in and help give that last push to get promoted.

“I have played against the manager's teams throughout the league and they always play good football, John Eustace is there who I played with, and I know certain players like Jimmy Dunne and Andre Gray. I just thought this would be the right fit for me

“Anyone who knows me will know I will be disappointed with the game time I have got this season so I wanted to get out, get games and enjoy my football.

“I wasn't just going to sit around. A big thing for me is to push myself and enjoy my football."
