QPR are set to complete the signing of Hull City defender Jordy De Wijs on Wednesday, a report from West London Sport has revealed.
Manager Mark Warburton has previously confirmed that the club were close to completing a deal for the Dutchman, and it now appears as though that is all set to be confirmed imminently.
According to this latest report, QPR will announce a deal for De Wijs today, helping to bolster the club’s options at centre back.
It is thought that De Wijs will initially join the Championship club on loan for the rest of the season, with the option of making the move permanent in the summer transfer window.
Once De Wijs has signed, Conor Masterson is expected to leave QPR on loan, with Warburton apparently keen to give the 22-year-old more regular game time between now and the end of the season.
Since joining Hull from PSV Eindhoven in the summer of 2018, De Wijs has made 76 appearances in all competitions for the Tigers, scoring on three occasions.
Bringing in De Wijs does look to be a smart move from QPR.
The 26-year-old has previously shown that he can be a reliable option at the centre of defence at Championship level, so he should be able to provide some decent cover for Warburton’s side.
Indeed, he will no doubt be keen to prove a point in this league following Hull’s relegation last season, and this will give him the opportunity to do that.
It also looks as though this will help in terms of getting Masterson out on loan for some regular playing time, helping him to develop further, and benefitting QPR both in the short-term, and the long-term.
