After extended trial periods, Queens Park Rangers are set to sign former Watford defender Charlie Rowan and former Derby County striker Lewis Walker, according to West London Sport.

Free agents Charlie Rowan and Lewis Walker are both set to join Championship side Queens Park Rangers after their releases from Premier League side Watford and Championship rivals Derby County respectively.

Defender Charlie Rowan was released by Watford at the end of the 2017/18 Premier League season, after making no appearances for The Hornets in his spell at Vicarage Road. The 20-year-old has been on trial with Queens Park Rangers for nearly a month now, and played in The Hoops’ Under-23 game vs Coventry City on Monday afternoon, coming on off the bench.

Rowan endured an unsuccessful loan spell with then League Two side Accrington Stanley, but failed to make a single appearance in his time at the Wham Stadium after joining on a six month loan deal in the January transfer window of 2017.

Former Derby County attacker Lewis Walker left The Rams at the end of the Summer transfer window, and has been without a club since, but former Derby manager Steve McClaren is set to bring the youngster to his new club Queens Park Rangers.

After joining from Ilkeston in the 2015/16 season, Walker made the rise from the Derby County Under-18 side to the Under-23s, but failed to impress enough to breakthrough into the first team, resulting in his release from the Championship side. However, he looks set to have found a new Championship club in the shape of Steve McClaren’s QPR.

Here is what QPR fans had to say on Twitter:

Upon the announcement, one fan also praised the work of Les Ferdinand – Queens Park Rangers’ current coach and Director of Football.
