QPR confirm signing of youngster Shann

QPR have completed the signing of left-back Casey Shann.

The 19-year-old, who was released by Brighton this summer, has been given a one-year contract after impressing during a trial.

West London Sport recently revealed he had joined the club on trial – and also revealed on Wednesday morning that Rangers were set to sign him.

Shann can be signed outside of the transfer window as he was a free agent.

He was with Sutton United prior to being signed by Brighton in January last year and also had a spell on Tottenham’s books.

Shann has been signed to initially play for Rangers’ development side.

In terms of the first-team squad, boss Gareth Ainsworth is keen to bring in at least one attacking player.

A number of forwards currently without a club have been considered as potential signings.

Rangers remain interested in re-signing veteran striker Chris Martin, who has been considering his options since his short-term contract expired after the end of last season.
