LUKE Amos has signed on loan for QPR from Tottenham Hotspur for the 2019/20 campaign.
Amos, 22, joined Spurs’ academy when he was nine years old and has recently had loan spells with Southend United and Stevenage.
The midfielder impressed during Tottenham’s first-team summer tour in the States last summer and made his Premier League debut on the opening day of last season against Newcastle United.
However, his progress was cruelly hampered by an Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury in September.
Now, following his recovery, Amos is determined to get back on track and is relishing the season ahead with QPR.
“It has been a tough nine months but I am really excited now,” he told www.qpr.co.uk.
“I haven’t wasted a day in that whole time. I feel physically fit and the next step for me is being back in games and that’s something I am looking forward to.
“I feel like I was hungry to succeed before – but now I am absolutely starving! It has been such a tough journey and I want it now more than ever.
“I want to enjoy my football but that enjoyment comes from winning lots of games and playing lots of games, so that’s my target.”
Amos also revealed that the opportunity to work with Mark Warburton was a big factor in his decision to come to QPR, explaining: “I have heard good things about him from players that have worked with him so when I got told about the move, for me it was a no brainer.”
Warburton added: “I know the quality that Luke has and how he can impact matches.
“He is clever on the ball, has technical ability and a passion for the game. I have admired him from afar and with Tottenham being my local team, I have seen him many times and watched him work.
“He can get forward, he sees the pass, sees the opportunity, opens up play and can create in tight areas. He is a strong midfield talent who will really push hard to play week in, week out.
“I am very grateful to Mauricio Pochettino, his staff and John McDermott who have helped this loan to happen.”
