QPR have confirmed the signing of Paul Smyth from Linfield. 

West London Sport recently revealed that Rangers had made an offer for Northern Ireland Under-21 forward Smyth, 19, and subsequently revealed that a deal had been agreed in principle.

Smyth has signed a two-year contract at Loftus Road and will initially play for QPR’s development side. 

“He’s a young, talented kid who we really feel can develop at QPR,” director of football Les Ferdinand told the club website.

“We feel that he’s capable of pushing for a place in and around the first team.”

Meanwhile, the R’s have made an approach for Exeter City winger David Wheeler.
