QPR beat off a host of teams to bring exciting prospect Ryan Manning to the club in January 2015.
The Irish Under-21 international made 18 starts for the Under-21s during the 2015/16 season, finding the back of the net twice in the process.
In December 2016, Manning was given his debut away at Wolves and the midfielder performed admirably as the R’s picked up their first win in six matches.
The Galway born playmaker has since gone on to establish himself in the first team and the technically gifted left-footer signed a new long-term contract in January 2017, just a few days after scoring his first goal for the club against Fulham in a 1-1 draw.
Manning is usually a central midfielder but showed his versatility towards the end of the 2016/17 season playing at left-midfield and on occasions left-back.
He found first-team opportunities harder to find last season but still managed 21 appearances and scored two goals including the opener in our memorable 3-1 win at Villa Park.
