QPR have handed a trial to former Watford defender Charlie Rowan, according to West London Sport.

The Championship side will take a look at the 20-year-old centre-back and see how he fits into their style of play.

Rowan was released by Premier League side Watford at the end of last season in May and has since spent time with Italian Serie A outfit Torino. However, it appears his future is back in England and he has been weighing up his options over the past couple of months.

QPR are keeping one eye on youth development this season and have been giving first-team chances to youngsters like Eberechi Eze, Aramide Oteh and Illias Chair. They have also been taking players on trial, like Rowan, and have taken former Derby County striker Lewis Walker on a short-term basis.

Rowan never made a senior appearance for Watford but was a regular for the Hornet’s youth sides throughout his years at Vicarage Road. He was previously the captain of their Under-18’s side. He also had a brief loan stint at Accrington Stanley last season to gain some experience but was not able to make an appearance.

QPR’s Under-23’s face Ipswich Town this afternoon and Rowan is expected to start for the London side. He will be hoping to impress in the Hoops’ shirt and earn a contract with them in the near future. Walters, who is the son of former England international Des, is likely to play again too.
