Field explains why he was ‘desperate’ to join QPR

Sam Field has said he believed the time was right to leave West Brom.

The midfielder, 23, has made a permanent move to QPR, where he ended last season on loan.


Field has signed a three-year contract with the option of a further year and admitted he was delighted the transfer went through.

He told Rangers’ website: “Sometimes you feel that chapters are up in your life and West Brom has been absolutely brilliant for me. But I felt it was the right time to move on for good now. I had a feeling in January that if I could get this move right, I could stay here.

“I’ve settled in really quickly and really enjoyed it, too. So I was desperate to get this move completed as a result.”

Field made eight starts during his loan spell with Rangers, whose manager Mark Warburton was keen to keep him.

As well as in midfield, Field can also play at centre-back, so offers versatility.

“We’re delighted to complete the permanent transfer of Sam,” Warburton said.

“He is a young player who showed his evident quality in the games he played for us during the second half of last season.

”He adds both physicality and versatility to our play. And he undoubtedly has huge development potential.

“We’re all really excited to continue working with him, seeing his continued progress and the impact he’ll have on the team.

“It’s no secret that he had a frustrating time with injury previously, so therefore he has a lot of development left in him.

“He has been well looked after by our medical team and he has a great attitude. He is well liked by the players and, as I said, we’re delighted to have him on board on a permanent basis.

“He is a talented footballer who will only continue to benefit from the presence of the senior players here.”
