Report: QPR agree deal with Conor Washington; set to undergo medical before signing

Loftus Road QPR

Peterborough’s Conor Washington is set to sign for QPR.

QPR have reached an agreement with Peterborough United for the transfer of Conor Washington, Sky Sports reports.

The 23-year-old striker, who has 10 League One goals to his name this term, was the subject of a £3 million bid by the Rs, which has been accepted by Posh.

The striker, who is seen as a replacement for Charlie Austin at Loftus Road, has also agreed personal terms with the West London club, and is set to undergo a medial before official confirming his transfer.

Should there be no issues with his medical, a deal is expected before the end of this week.

Washington will become QPR’s first signing of the January transfer window, and the first arrival of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s reign as head coach.

He should fit straight into the first-team set-up as Austin’s replacement, and Hasselbaink will be hoping to see Washington make the step up from League One to the Championship by continuing his fine form in front of goal.

Washington started his career with St. Ives Town, moving to Newport in 2012. He linked up with Peterborough in January 2014 and has scored 32 goals in 93 appearances for the club.
