QPR Boss: I’ve been chasing Leon Balogun all summer
QPR head coach Mick Beale says he has been keen on signing Leon Balogun for some time and he is excited by his sixth signing of the summer
“I am delighted with this one – I have been chasing him all summer,” he said.
“He had a lot of offers so it is great we have been able to get him. He comes here on the back of two years at Rangers.
He was absolutely fantastic in the season we won the league and last season he made 37 appearances in the team that won the Scottish Cup and reached the Europa League Final.
“He has got huge amounts of experience, has played in the Premier League and Bundesliga as well and I am delighted now with the strength we have defensively.”
Beale admits Balogun’s character off the pitch was also a big attraction, explaining: “I like the way he carries himself. He is a very special person in terms of his personality.
“He has got elite standards and I have seen that first hand.”
