De Wijs passed fit for QPR’s United friendly

QPR: Jordy de Wijs

QPR defender Jordy de Wijs has returned to training following a recent injury.

De Wijs missed a pre-season game against Portsmouth last week after picking up a knock.

He was signed on a permanent deal from Hull City this summer after some stand-out performances last season despite his loan spell being marred by injury problems.

The Dutchman has been passed fit to return to action and is expected to feature in Saturday’s friendly against Manchester United.

So too is Moses Odubajo, who is set to join the club after impressing while on trial.

Odubajo, 27, played under R’s boss Mark Warburton at Brentford and is a free agent after being released by Sheffield Wednesday.

He has been training with Rangers with a view to signing if he proves his fitness.

He featured in the Portsmouth friendly, and was due to play against Gillingham last Friday, but the game was cancelled because of a Covid-19 outbreak at the Kent club.

But Odubajo has looked sharp in training and Rangers have decided to go ahead with a deal to sign him.

Warburton, who plans to continue using a back three this season, wants Odubajo to compete with Osman Kakay for the right-wing back slot, replacing the axed Todd Kane.

Former Chelsea trainee Kane has been overlooked since Warbuton became aware of an interview in which he insisted he was a better player than Kakay.
