Watson joins Hoops on loan

Published Add your comment

Wigan midfielder Ben Watson has joined Coca-Cola Championship side QPR on loan until December 31.

The 24-year-old was signed for £2million from Crystal Palace in January by former Latics manager Steve Bruce, but has found himself out in the cold this season under Roberto Martinez.

Rangers boss Jim Magilton said: "Ben will prove to be a fantastic addition to the squad. He's got a proven track record in this division, as well as the Premier League, and I'm just delighted we've been able to bring him to the Club."

Magilton added: "He's a box-to-box midfielder, who scores goals and puts his boot in - he's got all the attributes that you need to play in that central-midfield role."
