QPR are on the brink of signing Peterborough United striker Conor Washington with the Posh forward undergoing a medical today.

The Hoops have agreed a deal in excess of £2.5million for the player after this week selling Charlie Austin to Premier League side Southampton.

Washington signed for the Posh for an initial £150,000 from Newport County in January 2014 and has already plundered 15 goals this season.

The 23-year old is expected to report to QPR’s training ground later today to complete a medical after personal terms were verbally agreed according to reports.

Peterborough’s director of football, Barry Fry, told the Peterborough Telegraph: “The deal isn’t done until the paperwork is completed, but QPR are the only ones we are currently involved with regarding the sale of Conor.

“QPR have made an offer that’s acceptable to the club and the player wants to go which is perfectly understandable. We believe the deal is a good one for Posh and will be a good one for Conor.

“The deal is worth more than the £2.5 million that has been reported tonight. It represents a great profit on a player who has so far cost us just £220,000.

“Conor’s improvement has been so great and so rapid it has taken many people at the club, as well as fans, by surprise, with the exception of our chairman who has always rated Conor very highly.”

Washington leaves Peterborough having scored 33 goals in 94 appearances for the London Road club.
