Albert Adomah has signed a two-year deal with his boyhood club QPR, the Sky Bet Championship outfit have announced.

The 32-year-old former Middlesbrough and Aston Villa winger was a free agent following the expiry of his deal at Nottingham Forest, whom he joined last summer before heading out on loan to Cardiff in January.

Adomah told the club’s official website: “Imagine being a supporter and playing for the club you love. Words can’t even describe it. It’s just amazing, just a pleasure to be here.

“This is just surreal. All I can see right now is Bobby Zamora scoring at Wembley – I should be here talking about myself, but that’s all I can think of right now.

“If I could get a third promotion, that would be one of my great achievements. That’s my ambition.”

Rangers boss Mark Warburton added: “He is a proven player at this level, comfortable on both flanks, still a good age, a London lad and a QPR fan, so it is fantastic to have him on board.”

QPR later announced the capture of former Arsenal youngster Chris Willock on a three-year deal from Benfica for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old, though, will have to wait on the results of a Covid-19 test following his arrival from Portugal before he can report for training.

Willock had loan spells in the Championship last season with West Brom and Huddersfield and told his new club’s official website: “I am really excited. I can’t wait to meet my new team-mates and to get started.

“I am just looking forward to getting out on the pitch and proving to everyone what I can do.”
