Deal Close: QPR set to sign defender



According to local news outlet West London Sport, Queens Park Rangers are on the verge of signing free agent defender Alex Finney.

Alex Finney has been on trial at Loftus Road and he is understood to have put pen to paper on a short term deal until the end of the season.

During his trial spell, Finney has been playing regularly for QPR’s under-23 side and he is expected to sign later in this week.

Huddersfield-born Finney started his career in Leyton Orient’s academy where he was highly rated by the East London oufit.

In 2014, he left the O’s to join the academy at Bolton Wanderers.

After progressing successfully through the youth ranks at Bolton, he made his first team debut for the Trotters in a 4-1 loss to his hometown club Huddersfield Town in mid-September 2015.

That debut appearance was just a late substitute cameo in place of striker Stephen Dobbie.

The towering centre half made his second appearance early in the 2016/17 season in Bolton’s EFL Cup loss to Blackpool.

His contract was terminated by mutual consent just three days later and he has been without a club since.

Now the 20-year-old’s search for a new club appears to be over with QPR set to sign the youngster.

The 6’4” defender will become Ian Holloway’s first signing since taking over as manager of QPR.
