Alex Iwobi: Forward has impressed Arsene Wenger

The 23-year-old, who was training with Rangers last season, will pen a contract from August 1.

Blackwood told “I am very happy to sign for QPR.

“I worked hard throughout the backend of last season, and the start of this, and the hard work has paid off.

“I’m a striker who likes to play on the shoulder of the last man, use my pace, and I’m a goalscorer.

“My personal target this season is to get league appearances. I know I’m good enough, but I have to prove to the manager and the rest of the team that I deserve to be involved. That’s my aim.

“Under Chris Ramsey, you know that every day you train there is a chance you will be involved. It gives you that extra incentive, you don’t need any more motivation than that.”

Head coach Ramsey added: “Tyler is a late developer. He went down the education route initially, and studied in America.

“He has trained with us for a few months and we believe he deserves this chance.”
