Peterborough United have signed Queens Park Rangers midfielder Michael Doughty on a three-year deal, according to Peterborough United’s official website.
Michael Doughty has signed from Queens Park Rangers for an undisclosed fee after he completed a medical and signed his contract at the Mick George Training Academy. He will now fly to Spain to join his team-mates at their pre-season training camp.

He then joined back up with his QPR team-mates for the second half of the season. But he only made four appearances failing to contribute to any goals.
In an interview with the Welshman, he said, “I had a chat with the manager and knew that this was the place for me. I know what this club is all about having played against Peterborough for a number of other clubs.” he then added, “It was important to get things sorted early, both for me and I think the manager.”
Doughty is a very established midfielder in the lower leagues of English professional football. He’s made 79 appearances in League One and 21 appearances in League Two. Scoring a total of 10 goals and setting up 13 goals from midfield.
In the same interview, he said that he has “experience of playing in this league” and he knows that League One can be “a grueling league”.
Finally, he added, “This felt like the right time for me to make the move and I am looking forward to meeting the rest of the lads and getting started.”
