QPR’s Hamalainen completes loan move

QPR’s Niko Hamalainen has completed a loan move to Brazilian outfit Botafogo.

Hamalainen has joined Fogo on a deal until July, although there is an option to recall him in June.

The Finland international , 25, is under contract at Rangers until 2024, having been given a four-year deal in 2020.

He was signed in 2014 but has made just 19 league starts for the club and has been surplus to requirements under manager Mark Warburton.

Hamalainen has previously been sent on loan to Los Angeles FC and Los Angeles Galaxy in his native United States, as well as Kilmarnock and Dagenham & Redbridge.

Meanwhile, teenage striker Sinclair Armstrong has joined Aldershot Town from QPR for the rest of the season.
