QPR boss impressed with new signing Willock

QPR manager Mark Warburton

Mark Warburton says he has been impressed with Chris Willock’s fitness levels since the forward’s arrival at QPR.

The former Arsenal youngster was recently signed from Benfica, where he was not involved in the first team.

He is in the squad for today’s game against Bournemouth and in contention to make his debut.

Rangers manager Warburton said: “I wasn’t sure how fit he would be, having not played for a while, but he’s shown up very well in training.

“He’s available for selection and he looks really good – the way he’s come in, been accepted by the squad and the quality he’s shown in training.”

Willock, 22, will also offer versatility as he can play wide or through the middle.

“That’s what I love about him,” Warburton said.

“He can play left, right or in the number 10 role as well. He’s a very clever footballer.”
