QPR sign Ngbakoto in £1.5m deal

Loftus Road

QPR have clinched the signing of winger Yeni Ngbakoto from French club Metz for around £1.5m. 

Ngbakoto, 24, has signed a three-year contract at Loftus Road despite a late approach from Wolves.

The Midlands club are looking to spend heavily following a recent takeover by a Chinese group and this week gazumped Rangers to sign Iceland forward Jon Dadi Bodvarsson.

This time though it went QPR’s way, with Ngbakoto telling them on Saturday afternoon that he had decided to join them.

Rangers spent weeks negotiating a deal with Metz, increasing their offer before eventually being given the green light to talk to the player.
