Sam McCallum will be looking forward to getting started wit Queens Park Rangers.
The 20-year-old finalised a loan move that will see him spend the season in West London after completing a short-term switch from Premier League newcomers Norwich City.
The wing-back has experience in the Championship after making a total of 84 appearances for previous club Coventry City after coming through the club’s academy before heading back to the Ricoh Arena on loan from the Canaries.
McCallum’s arrival has certainly been met with delight from the club’s head coach Mark Warburton, who told the club website: “I am really pleased we have been able to bring Sam in.
“He showed his undoubted quality in the Championship last season with Coventry. He brings real ability and will add competition to the squad which is so important.
“He also understands the wingback role, he has an attacking instinct, great physicality and is aerially very strong as well.
“Sam is a player who can have an impact in both boxes, and I am looking forward to working with him.”
One man who knows exactly what it’s like making the move to QPR is Jordan Hugill.
The Norwich striker spent the 2019-20 season on loan at Loftus Road and found the net on 30 occasions for the club during a successful campaign at the club, and he was among the first to congratulate the 20-year-old on his own switch to West London.
Good luck Sam! You’ll enjoy it there mate! 👍🏼👍🏼

Jordan Hugill is a really popular figure in West London and so this will go down very well.
The striker was a big success and for him to give the loan move his backing will be a real boost for Sam McCallum as he prepares for the upcoming season.
The wing-back will be hoping to kick on after a decent spell with Coventry City last term, and QPR could be the ideal place for him to do just that.
If McCallum can find the sort of form that Hugill did during his loan spell then he could be preparing for a big campaign.
