QPR Under-23s have completed the signing of teenage goalkeeper Joe Walsh from Gillingham.
The shot-stopper – who joins the R’s for an undisclosed fee – has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract in W12.
Walsh progressed through the academy ranks at Gillingham and signed his first professional contract in May 2019. Five months later, he made his senior debut in the EFL Trophy, aged just 17, and in October 2020 made his first appearance in Sky Bet League One against Ipswich Town.
QPR director of football Les Ferdinand said: “Joe is a bright, bright prospect.
“He was identified by the club’s goalkeeping fraternity and has attracted a lot of interest – especially after making his league debut at just 18 earlier this season.
“Everyone knows we are in the market for developing young players. Joe has lots of potential, which bodes well for the future.”
