THE speedy forward is a recent recruit having signed in January 2017 after impressing on trial.
A midfielder who possesses great technical skills, Chair had a breakthrough year for the R’s during the 2017/2018 season.
The youngster, who joined the club from Lierse SK, is a Moroccan youth international despite being born in Belgium.
He made six appearances for the QPR Under-23s in his first year in English football playing in a number of attacking positions.
Having impressed Ian Holloway in training, the 19-year old was called up to the first team for the Carabao Cup 1st round tie against Northampton Town back in August 2017 and put in a mature performance.
Chair went on to make six more appearances last term and scored his first goal for Rangers in a 3-1 win against Birmingham, in what was the final league match at Loftus Road that season.
Chair’s growing reputation in W12 led to him being offered a long-term contract, and in February 2018 he signed a new deal that will keep him at the club until 2020.
