Wanderers made another move into the loan market on Wednesday 30th August with the signing of 19 year old midfielder Eberechi Eze from Queens Park Rangers. The two clubs have agreed a deal running until 2nd January 2018.

The London player was originally part of the youth set-up with Arsenal, before time with Fulham and Millwall. He signed for Rangers in August 2016 from Millwall on a one year deal but this was extended until June 2020 after bagging nine goals in fourteen appearances for the Rangers U23 side.

His solitary First Team appearance for QPR to date was an appearance in their 2-1 home defeat to Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup in January 2017 – however, his time was cut to just 18 minutes due to injury. He has also been called up to Nigerian national side

Commenting on the deal, Gareth Ainsworth said:

“Ebere is very highly-rated at QPR and I’m delighted and grateful that they’ve entrusted us with another of their young talents. He’s an exciting player to watch and someone who can make things happen, and he’ll give us another dimension going forward.

“Sam Saunders is out for a little while longer than we first expected so Ebere could have the chance to get some minutes under his belt to show what he can do, and we’ll be working with him closely to make sure he can make the most of his opportunity here.

“We’re still keeping our options open before the transfer window closes tomorrow and there may be more activity, but I’m very pleased with the squad we’ve got and with a few adjustments based on what we’ve seen from the first six games, I’m confident we’ll be able to build on the positives and hit a strong run of form.”

He has been allocated the 27 in the Wanderers squad and been given permission to play in Football League Trophy matches but not the FA Cup during his time at Adams Park.
