QPR have taken striker Lewis Walker on trial, according to West London Sport.

The 20-year-old left Championship side Derby County at the end of August and has been looking for a club since. He is hoping to impress QPR and earn a contract with the London side.

Lewis Walker is the son of former England defender Des Walker and his brother Tyler plays for Nottingham Forest.

He started his career in non-league football with Ilkeston Town and impressed for them before being snapped up by Derby County in January 2016. Walker never made a senior appearance for the Rams but progressed from their Under-18’s to their Under-23’s side during his time at Pride Park.

Walker also gained some first-team experience during a brief loan spell at National League North side Darlington. It did not work out for him in the end at Derby but he will get another chance on trial at QPR now.

Steve McClaren’s side have given youth a chance this season by handing regular starts to the likes of Eberechi Eze and Osman Kakay. This shows that they are looking to the future at Loftus Road which means Walker could have a good chance during his time there on trial.

After a difficult start to the Championship season, QPR have turned a corner now and got another win last time out against Reading at the Madejski Stadium. Next up for the Hoops is a tough home tie against Lewis Walker’s ex-club Derby County but they will go into it in confident mood.
