Guingamp and DR Congo
ISC represented QPR in the transfer of highly-rated French attacker Yeni Ngbakoto from Metz to Queens Park Rangers.
24 year-old put pen to paper on a three-year-deal at Loftus Road, after an undisclosed fee was agreed with FC Metz for the French youth international’s services.
QPR boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink expressed his delight at clinching the signing, as Rangers beat off stiff competition from a number of clubs, including Premier League sides, for his signature.
“I’m delighted we’ve got the deal over the line,” he told www.qpr.co.uk, “because there was great interest in him.
“Yeni is a player we’ve scouted for a long while and identified as being a player that suits what we are trying to do here at QPR.
“He’s a good age, he’s already got great quality, but we firmly believe we can help take his game to the next level.”
Hasselbaink added: “He’s got a spur of pace that will cause team’s problems, and that is a great asset to have.
“He can pick a pass, he can score goals – and if he can get anywhere near to replicating his figures with Metz from last season, we will be delighted.
“I’m really excited to bring him here and I’m sure the fans will really take to watching him play for QPR.”
After 18 months with QPR, Yeni signed for French Ligue side Guingamp.
