QPR have completed the signing of young Danish striker Marco Ramkilde on a free transfer, subject to international clearance.
The 21-year-old – who has represented his country at U16, U17, U18 and U19 level – will work with the club’s U23s squad.
Ramkilde has penned an 18-month contract, which commits him to the R’s until summer 2021 and he is looking forward to his opportunity in west London.
“On the first day of my trial at QPR, it felt like the perfect match,” he told www.qpr.co.uk. “I know this is a club with a lot of history and it is a great opportunity for me.
“I am looking forward to showing what I can do. I want to develop – I know that I am not quite ready yet – but with the help of the staff here hopefully I can progress and help the club if I get my chance.”
Ramkilde started his career in his native Denmark with Aalborg Boldspilklub (AaB) and he has been on trial with Paul Hall’s U23s squad for the last few weeks.
In 2016, he made his senior debut for AaB just three weeks after his 18th birthday and, having recently recovered from a serious ankle injury, he is determined to get back firing in front of goal.
Ramkile said: “I am quite quick when you consider my height and I like to think that I am good tactically and work well under pressure. I’m a good finisher with my feet and head and hopefully I can score some goals for QPR.”
