​Queens Park Rangers have signed Exeter City winger David Wheeler on a three-year deal, the club have ​confirmed

26-year-old Wheeler has made the move to Loftus Road - for an undisclosed fee - following his impressive campaign with Exeter in League Two last season, which saw him net 21 goals for the Grecians. 


Wheeler first started his career at ​Brighton and Hove Albion's academy, before moving to Staines Town three years later, where he subsequently joined Exeter City in 2013.

The 26-year-old is known for being strong in the air, energetic and creative, with the ability to be deployed not only as a right winger but also as a wing-back and striker. 

After signing for QPR, Wheeler told the club's website: “I’m really excited. This is a big deal for me and I can’t wait to get started. Like anyone in any career path, when you take a step up it can take some time to acclimatise, but I’m confident I can have a positive impact for the team.

“Wherever I have been, I have been known to be a hard-working, honest player and I will give my all.

After securing the winger, QPR boss Ian Holloway added: “We’re delighted to bring David in. He had a great season last year, and if you look at him, he has progressed every year. That’s what we want him to continue now he’s at QPR.

"He has got a fantastic work ethic, he gives us an attacking threat, and he’s got versatility as well, which is so important in the modern game. I want to give him a chance at this level. So many promising players don’t get this sort of opportunity, and I believe he’s going to take to it like a duck to water."
