QPR ready to sign youngster Dixon-Bonner

QPR are looking to sign former Liverpool youngster Elijah Dixon-Bonner.

The midfielder, 21, has been on trial and the club have decided to offer him a contract.

He is regarded by Rangers as a similar type of player to Luke Amos and a potentially useful option to have in the squad.

He is well known to QPR head coach Mick Beale, who previously worked at Liverpool.

Dixon-Bonner was released at the end of last season, having moved to Anfield from Arsenal as a teenager.

Meanwhile, Rangers striker Sinclair Armstrong has picked up a thigh injury.
