LUKE Amos has completed a permanent transfer to QPR from Tottenham Hotspur, signing a three-year deal with the club for an undisclosed fee.
The 23-year-old midfielder spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan with the R’s and is now looking forward to a sustained period in west London.
Amos told www.qpr.co.uk: “It’s really good to be back.
“Last year, I came here on loan, played games and really enjoyed the opportunity that the gaffer (Mark Warburton) gave me.
“For him to bring me back and to be here for another three years – I’m really looking forward to pushing on and doing well.
“It’s an amazing group here, I’ve made some really good friends – as soon as I arrived, I was made to feel very welcome. Having a good group and the opportunity to play is all you can really ask for.”
He continued: “I think last year was about getting used to the level. Now that my injury is behind me and a year of Championship football is, too, I think I can kick on and show everyone what I can do.
“I don’t think I showed half of what I am capable of last year. Hopefully I can impress everyone this season – I’m excited to get going.”
R’s boss Warburton is pleased to secure the services of Amos, who had been at Tottenham since the age of nine, saying: “I am delighted to get this done and welcome Luke on board.
“There has been a lot of good work done by Les Ferdinand and the Board, likewise at Spurs.
“Luke got over a nasty knee injury to play 35 games for us last season and we saw him getting stronger and more confident as the campaign progressed.
“I believe he can thrive and really kick on from here.”
Warburton is looking forward to seeing Amos develop in the coming months, adding: “He plays and trains with a real intensity, he has a hunger to win and a desire to learn.
“He has a real passion for the game.
“With those fantastic traits Luke has enormous potential.”
I think I can kick on and show everyone what I can do. I don’t think I showed half of what I am capable of last year.
