Sources: QPR agree to sign Norwich City star McCallum
QPR have agreed to sign Norwich City defender Sam McCallum, Football Insider has learned.
The left-back, 20, spent last season on loan at Coventry City and started nearly every game for them.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that QPR have swooped for McCallum and agreed the terms of a season-long loan.
McCallum’s loan move to Coventry was actually this third spell at the club.
The left-back initially signed for Coventry in 2018 after being at Jamie Vardy’s V9 Academy.
He made 25 appearances across two seasons before signing for Norwich in January 2020.
