The new Queens Park Rangers forward is ready for their next clash.

Queens Park Rangers’ latest addition, Conor Washington, wasted little time getting to know his new teammates as he trained with the club ahead of their weekend clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Washington signed for QPR from Peterborough United on Tuesday for an undisclosed fee and a day later he was out on the training field with the rest of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s squad, captured in an image later posted on the club’s Twitter account.

Washington will be tasked with replacing the goals of Charlie Austin after the latter moved to Southampton earlier this month, and his record at Peterborough suggests he could well make the step up with relative ease.

The 23-year-old has already scored 15 goals in 31 matches this season and he ended his time as a Posh player with 32 in 94.

In time Washington is expected to improve considerably and his signing could ultimately prove to be a master-stroke by Hasselbaink and the QPR board.
