QPR have completed their fifth signing of the 2016/17 season, with the addition of highly-rated French attacker Yeni Ngbakoto.

Born in Croix, Yeni Atito Ngbakoto - to give him his full name - joined FC Metz as a teenager, having initially began his football career at SC Clemenceau.

He excelled in the club's youth academy, drawing interest from a number of top clubs as his rise through the ranks continued.

His performances with Metz's under-16 team led to a call-up to the France under-17 squad, before he put pen to paper on his first contract as a professional, penning a five year contract in 2009.

After making his full debut in January 2010, Ngbakoto went on to become a regular, featuring in the league for the first time in August 2010.

His steady progress continued thereafter, gaining caps for the French under-18 national side.

Indeed, he arrives on these shores having helped Metz regain their French top-flight status at the first time of asking last term, scoring 12 goals and contributing 11 assists in 38 appearances in Ligue 2.
