QPR snap up Simpson on loan from Arsenal
Thursday 27 August 2009
QPR have signed Arsenal striker Jay Simpson on a season-long loan.
Rangers beat off competition from three Premier League clubs to land the highly-rated 20-year-old, who will go straight into the squad for Saturday's trip to Scunthorpe.
"Jay is a fine young player, who will prove to be a quality addition to the squad," said boss Jim Magilton.
"He's already shown glimpses of his quality at Arsenal and during loan spells elsewhere and we'll be looking for him to continue his progression under our guidance.
"There's no doubt he's got all the attributes to be a top, top player, but he needs games and we're delighted we've been given the opportunity by Arsenal to provide him with a platform to showcase his ability."
