‘This’d be a cracking signing’ – QPR eyeing attacking midfielder move: Opinion



QPR are set to target midfielder Jonny Williams in the summer transfer window following his release from Charlton Athletic, The Daily Mail have reported.

Williams made 18 appearances for Charlton after arriving on a short term deal in January, helping the London side to promotion back to the Championship following their dramatic play-off final victory over Sunderland.

The Addicks however have decided to release the midfielder, since they do not believe they will be able to compete with the offers Williams is set to receive from elsewhere.

It now appears that there are several Championship clubs keen on signing the midfielder, with QPR, Swansea and Preston all said to be interested in signing the 25-year-old.

So would Williams be a good signing for QPR?

We put that question to some of our Football League World writers, who had this to say.

Gary Hutchinson

“Yes, absolutely.

“Williams is creative and experienced and he needs a club who will play him.

“If Charlton could have him back, he’d be a regular there, so why not at Loftus Road?

“They often lacked that spark on the ball last season and Williams could be it.”

Toby Wilding

“This would be a smart move from QPR.

“Williams played a big role in Charlton’s promotion from League One in the second half of the season, and his creativity could help keep QPR away from that division next season.

“His availability on a free will also help Rangers’ cause, so this is definitely one they should be keen to pursue.”

George Brooks


“Williams is a good player and has plenty of experience.

“He was outstanding for Charlton last season and it’s no surprise that plenty of clubs are interested in him.

“QPR will be operating on a tight budget, because of the financial situation at the club, so Williams would be an ideal signing on a free transfer.”
