Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Warburton has tipped his new Zimbabwean signing Macauley Bonne to shine at the English Championship side.

Warburton described the 24-year-old as a “proven goalscorer” after he completed his move to the former Premiership club on Friday.

The Warriors forward was unveiled as the club’s sixth signing of the summer transfer window, in a deal that is believed to net League One side Charlton Athletic around £2 million (R42,6 million).

QPR confirmed he penned a three-year deal, subject to passing a medical. The club also have the option of extending this by a further 12 months.

Warburton could not hide his joy, after landing the forward, just a few days before the transfer window closes on Monday.

QPR have been chasing the talented forward and had two bids rejected, in the last two weeks, before landing their target with an improved third offer on Friday.

“I am delighted to have him come on board. Macauley has already shown himself to be a proven goalscorer at this level, and he did it with a team in the lower half of the division. He can score a variety of goals, he’s young, hungry and has a lot of development potential in him.

“He will help to lighten the load for Lyndon Dykes and will certainly give us a different option up front,” Warburton told the club’s website.

Bonne made his debut in the Championship last season and went on to score 11 goals from 33 appearances for Charlton Athletic.
