QPR set to confirm signing of Dozzell

QPR are set to confirm the signing midfielder Andre Dozzell from Ipswich Town.

Negotiations have been taking place and a deal now appears to have been agreed for the 22-year-old to move to west London.

Dozzell is a product of Ipswich’s academy and has made 93 first-team appearances for the Suffolk club, with 46 of them coming last season.

Dozzell is regarded as one for the future and is in line to replace Tom Carroll in the Rangers squad.

Carroll looks set to leave after rejecting the offer of a new contract.

The midfielder, who recently turned 29, was signed on a one-year deal last summer.

He subsequently made 22 Championship appearances before his season was ended in January by a knee injury.

Carroll returned to action for Rangers’ development side towards the end of the campaign and was an unused substitute for the first team’s final two matches.

He was offered a contract by the club last month along with Charlie Owens, who has been out for almost two years with a knee injury.

But Carroll was unhappy with the terms on offer and, although talks have continued, it currently seems unlikely that he will be a Rangers player next season.

He has been looking at other options, with a number of clubs seemingly interested in picking him up.
