Aveiro rose up through the youth ranks at Palace and was a key player for both their Under-18s and Under-23s side during his time at Selhurst Park.

However, he was allowed to move on at the end of last season and it will be interesting to see if QPR take a gamble on him.

Thoughts?

QPR have had some bright young talents emerge into their first-team over recent years and have proven to be a great home for youngsters.

It is likely that he would initially link up with the R’s development squad.
