Queens Park Rangers are on the brink of signing Sean Goss from Manchester United for an initial fee of £500,000, which can potentially rise to £800,000.
According to BBC sources, he will finalise the personal terms and have a medical today before completing his switch to Loftus Road. There is a strong possibility that United will include a buy-back clause in the deal.
The midfielder will be Ian Holloway’s second January signing after Kazenga LuaLua, and might join QPR’s squad for Saturday’s Championship match at home against Burton Albion.

Goss recently rejected a new deal at Old Trafford in search of first-team football. He had the chance to wait until the summer window for a much exciting deal with an interested Premier League club, but opted to leave this month.
Wigan Athletic and Barnsley were also interested to sign Goss, but following a positive meeting with Ian Holloway earlier this week, the youngster chose to move to Loftus Road.
Goss is a childhood Manchester United fan who was brought in by the Reds at the age of 17 after an impressive run in the AEGON Future Cup in 2012. A naturally gifted left-footed midfielder, who has also played at left-back, Goss has always been impressive at the United academy. He almost broke into the first team under Louis van Gaal, but missed most of 2016 with a stress fracture to his back.
Ian Holloway is trying to reshape the QPR squad this January, bringing in Goss and LuaLua, while moving on Sandro, Tjaronn Chery, Sebastian Polter and Ariel Borysiuk. After a difficult start, Holloway’s QPR have moved back into the Championship’s mid table.
