QPR rounded off a productive January transfer window by securing the services of West Bromwich Albion midfielder Sam Field in the final hour before the deadline on Monday night.
An engine roomer with an eye for a pass and lust for a 50/50 challenge, Field arrives in W12 with Championship and Premier League pedigree.
Having progressed through the ranks at his boyhood club West Brom, Field was named on a senior Baggies teamsheet a day shy of his 18th birthday on May 7th 2016.
He remained an unused substitute for that encounter – which was against AFC Bournemouth – but a week later his made his Premier League bow, coming off the bench to help West Brom earn a draw against Liverpool.
His first-team debut put the gloss on a triumphant season for the fledgling midfielder as he was also named as West Brom’s Academy Player of the Year.
The following season – and still as a teenager – he made eight top-flight appearances for the Baggies. Midway through the campaign, the club rewarded him for his efforts by offering him a four-year contract.
Twelve months later, and having established himself as an up-and-coming member of the West Brom first-team squad, he signed a fresh four-year deal, while, on the pitch, he bagged his maiden Premier League goal in a 2-2 draw with Newcastle United in November 2017.
On the international stage, Field has represented England at U18, U19 and U20 level and at club level he spent last term on loan at Charlton Athletic in the Sky Bet Championship.
He made 17 league appearances for the Addicks, securing six victories during his time in south-east London. This season, he has turned out five times for West Brom – three times in the Premier League – and now he becomes an R until the end of this season at least.
