Josh Bowler joins Premier League side Everton

JOSH Bowler has joined Premier League side Everton on a permanent deal.

Bowler, 18, who made an appearance for QPR in the final match of the 2016/17 season against Norwich, has put pen to paper at Goodison Park, after Rangers accepted an undisclosed fee for the teenager's services.

The final figure Rangers receive will be governed by various add-ons.

QPR's Director of Football, Les Ferdinand, told www.qpr.co.uk: "It's always disappointing when one of your young players expresses his desire to leave.

"However, the financial deal represents good value for a young player and whilst we are disappointed to see Josh leave, we wish him well for the future.”
