- QPR secure signing of midfielder Oscar Gobern
- 24-year-old signs 12 month deal at Loftus Road
- Gobern had been on trial with Chris Ramsey's side
QPR have completed the signing of midfielder Oscar Gobern.
Gobern has signed a one-year deal at Loftus Road, after impressing on trial during pre-season.
The 24 year-old, who left Huddersfield Town at the conclusion of his contract last season, will wear the number 17 shirt.
Head Coach, Chris Ramsey, told www.qpr.co.uk: “Oscar came in at the start of pre-season, got his head down, worked hard and he’s really impressed.
“He’s a good young player with a lot of potential, and we feel with the right attitude and guidance, he can really kick on at QPR.
“We’re pleased to add him to the squad and increase the competition for places in that area of the pitch.”
Gobern, who is a product of the Southampton Academy, is confident he can repay the faith shown in him by Ramsey, and is relishing the campaign ahead.
He said: “I've enjoyed pre-season here – and I'm delighted to have signed.
“Chris has made it known he wants a mixture of youth and experience in the squad and I'm probably a blend of the two. Him and Les have been brilliant with me, top drawer.
“My first goal is to play my way into the squad, get some minutes and see where it takes me.
“I can’t wait to pull on the shirt and play.”
Director of Football, Les Ferdinand, added: “Oscar’s another good addition for us – and another player with Championship experience.
“He’s a good age, has good attributes, and has settled into the group seamlessly during the few weeks he’s been with us.
“We’ve got decent competition in midfield and he will only add to that.”
