Brentford defender Yoann Barbet is set to join QPR.

The French defender’s contract at Griffin Park is expiring meaning he can join their London rivals on a free transfer, as per a report by Sport Witness.

Barbet, who is 26 years-old, has been a man in-demand but it looks like Mark Warburton’s side will win the race for him. He is set to sign a three-year deal at Loftus Road.

His career so far…

He had spells as a youngster at local sides such as AS Mouliets, Olympique Saint-Pey and FC Vallée de Gamage. He got one cap for the French U18’s side which he obtained in a fixture against Belgium in January 2011.

Barbet joined the Ligue 1 side in July 2007 and rose through their youth ranks. He quickly established himself as a regular for their B team and played 75 games for them altogether.

He swapped Bordeaux’s B team for Ligue 2 outfit Chamois Niortais in July 2014 and spent just a single season with them in the second tier but impressed in the 32 appearances he made.

Brentford signed him in June 2015 on a four-year contract and he was used as both a centre-back and left-back by the Bees. Barbet played over 100 games for the London side.

Decent window so far for QPR…

Warburton has signed goalkeeper Liam Kelly from Livingston, defender Lee Wallace from Rangers and is now set to snap up Barbet in what has been an impressive window so far for the Hoops.
