QPR close-in on Junior Hoilett

Junior Hoilett, Blackburn wingerQPR are thought to have won the race to sign highly-rated attacker Junior Hoilett, according to Sky Sports.

The Canadian forward has impressed over the last number of seasons for Blackburn, and was one of their few positives last term despite relegation.

However, Hoilett’s contract at Ewood Park expired this summer and the winger has opted not to extend with Steve Kean’s men, starting a scramble for his signature.

It was believed that German club Borussia Monchengladbach were interested in Hoilett, along with a raft of Premier League sides, but the North American has decided to move to Loftus Road.

It is thought that Hoilett was keen to remain in England, and impressed by Mark Hughes’ ambitious plans for Rangers.

The London outfit have already signed Ji-Sung Park, Andrew Johnson, Robert Green and Fabio this summer.
