YOANN Barbet joined QPR in the summer of 2019 following the expiry of his contract at Brentford, where he had previously spent four years.
The defender’s footballing career began in his native France, with top-flight side Bordeaux.
Having joined the Ligue 1 outfit as a 14-year-old, Barbet would go on to spend seven years at the Matmut Atlantique, featuring for their reserve side for three seasons in the fourth tier of French Football.
The centre-back then moved to Ligue 2 outfit Chamois Niortais in the summer of 2014, before departing the year later, with England and Brentford the destination.
Having made over 105 appearances for the Bees over a four-year spell, Barbet turned down a new contract offer in the summer of 2019 and instead elected to move across west London and become an R.
Known for his wonderful passing ability and sweet left foot, Barbet became an instant hit with the Rangers faithful, but a recuring injury hindered the Frenchman’s first campaign in W12.
However, the 2020/21 Sky Bet Championship campaign would be an impressive one for the 28-year-old.
Having played in every single minute of the season, Barbet became the only outfield Championship player to do so, highlighting the key role he has in Mark Warburton’s side.
