Queens Park Rangers have confirmed the signing of 19-year-old Giles Phillips.
The youngster has signed a one-year contract and is to play for their Under 23s side.
Phillips was previously plying his trade in his native America, for FC Barrington USA, but has now switched the United States for the United Kingdom with a move to QPR.
He becomes the second youngster to join QPR this summer, following fellow 19-year-old Charlie Owens, who joined on a free transfer from Tottenham, through the doors at Loftus Road.
Queens Park Rangers had a poor season in 2016/17. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was sacked and replaced with Ian Holloway, who is now into his second spell as R’s manager.
Holloway steered QPR away from the relegation places but the London club still only managed an 18th place finish, just two points clear of relegated Blackburn in 22nd. Next year, QPR fans will be hoping their club can look more towards a Play-Off push and Holloway appears to be adding youth to his squad.
