Queens Park Rangers have completed the signing of Sean Goss from Manchester United.
The 21-year-old has agreed on a three-and-a-half year contract with the west Londoners, but the transfer fee is yet to be disclosed. The midfielder recently rejected a new deal at Old Trafford in search of first-team football.
Goss told QPR’s official website: “I’m delighted that the deal is done – absolutely buzzing.

“I’m at the point now in my career where I need to be playing First Team football, week in, week out – so the opportunity to move to QPR was just something I had to pursue.
“Ian (Holloway) and Les (Ferdinand) had a massive influence on me. They told me everything I wanted to hear. The way they both spoke about QPR, showing such passion for the football club, was really special. Now it’s up to me to repay them both and everyone else at QPR for showing their faith in me.”
Goss moved to Old Trafford from Exeter back in 2012, and showed his talents for Nicky Butt’s reserves this season.
The boyhood Manchester United fan, born in Germany, didn’t get any chance to make a competitive first-team appearance for United, despite being on the bench for their Premier League fixture against Watford in November 2015. But he was a regular starter for Manchester United’s reserves.
Sean Goss has been given the number 10 shirt by Holloway, and such an opportunity to wear this iconic number is one he’s relishing.
“I know the pressure that comes with the number 10 shirt and that’s something I will relish,” he said.
“I’ve got great confidence in my own ability. You’ve got to believe in yourself as a footballer otherwise you won’t achieve what you set out to achieve. This is a really exciting move for me and I can’t wait to get going for QPR.”
