QPR youngster clinches Crawley loan move

Loftus Road

QPR midfielder Frankie Sutherland has joined League Two side Crawley Town on loan.

The 22-year-old, who has made eight appearances for Rangers’ Under-21s this season, will be with the Sussex club for a month.

He has been training with the Reds for the last couple of weeks and featured in a friendly with Eastleigh on Tuesday.

Hillingdon-born Sutherland joined QPR’s youth system aged 11 and earned his first professional contract in 2012.

Since then he has had loan spells with Portsmouth, Leyton Orient, AFC Wimbledon and Dagenham & Redbridge.

Sutherland is joined at Crawley by former Fulham midfielder Lyle Della Verde, who signed a short-term contract on Friday.
