Queens Park Rangers confirmed on their official website earlier today that they have signed striker Conor Washington from League One side Peterborough United.
Washington, 23, was working as a postman during his time with St. Ives, and after smashing 52 goals in 50 games for them, he made the move up to Newport County.
After just 18 months with the Welsh club, Washington was again on the move, this time joining Peterborough - and it's with Posh that he has made his name.
14 goals in his last 19 games have seen Washington become one of the deadliest strikers in League One, thriving under manager Graham Westley.
Now though, much like players such as George Boyd, Dwight Gayle, Britt Assombalonga and Lee Tomlin before him, Washington has left Peterborough in a big money deal, joining QPR for a fee reported by the Daily Mail as being worth £2.8m.
After announcing the deal, QPR fans took to Twitter to react, with many comparing Washington to former QPR No. 9 Charlie Austin, who left for Southampton on Saturday after a hugely successful spell at Loftus Road.
Fans are glad to see QPR taking a chance on a lower league player rather than an overpriced veteran, and are clearly excited to see how he fares as Austin's replacement.
Here are some of the reactions from QPR fans after the signing of Conor Washington earlier today...
IMO Conor Washington is a v good signing! The club haven't waited, they've struck early, well done those involved, he's a top signing! #QPR— positive pel (@pez334) January 19, 2016
Signing Conor Washington when Seb Polter started to find some form will help both. Polter to up his game and Washington to work hard. #QPR— Yousef Marafi® (@Yousef_QPR) January 19, 2016
Very happy that we've been able to sign Washington. His development this season for the posh shows what he's capable of achieving #QPR— Simon Prue (@SimonPrue_QPR) January 19, 2016
Absolutely quality signing in Washington. Similar to Austin in the way he plays. See him doing very well. #WelcomeWashington— George Benwell (@Georgeqpr1) January 19, 2016
