Report: A number of clubs interested in QPR man
Sean Goss has left QPR for Shrewsbury Town, the club have confirmed.
Goss had failed to command a place in the QPR first team since his switch from Manchester United in 2016, making just three starts in the league for the club, and only made one appearance in the last campaign as a substitute during the League Cup defeat to Blackpool last September – his most recent showing in a Hoops shirt.
Having spent time in the last two seasons on loan in Scotland at Rangers and St. Johnstone, Goss had struggled for game time at QPR, and Mark Warburton deemed the midfielder surplus to requirements, according to West London Sport, so it comes as no surprise to see him leave.
Other clubs were also said to be interested in signing Goss, but it is Shrewsbury who have won the race for his signature, with the transfer deadline in England’s third and fourth tiers not passing until the start of next month.
With Goss only racking up seven appearances across three years for the club, it may not be a great surprise that Warburton has decided to let him go, especially with the R’s welcoming several midfielders to the team this summer, including through the loan signings of Luke Amos and Matt Smith – while Geoff Cameron made his own loan move permanent.
Goss hardly had a look-in at QPR and it seems that the player was surplus to requirements, as the player failed to make a matchday squad since his solitary appearance last season, and only made a handful in his most recent spell at St. Johnstone where he failed to win a single game.
The German-born centre-mid only had a year left on his deal and could have eventually left on a free transfer – which means that this development was probably the best outcome for QPR.
