Lyndon Dykes Joins Queens Park Rangers
Career so Far
After various spells playing in the lower leagues of Australian football, Dykes moved to second tier Scottish side Queen of the South.
He spent three years with Queen of the South before joining Livingston last summer.
Last season was his most successful to date. The 24-year-old scored nine goals, as Livingston finished fifth in the Scottish Premiership.
Dykes started this season in a similar vain of form. He scored two goals in his first three games before making the move down south to The Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
What Was Said?
Speaking about his move to the Queens Park Rangers website, Dykes said: “I’m buzzing, obviously!
“Being at Livingston was great but to be at a club like this, I just want to put my head down now and kick on.
“I am a player who works hard for the team. I like to work hard for my team-mates, I want them to know that I’m putting it in for them. I am always going to give 100%.
QPR boss Mark Warburton spoke about his new signing, and how he can adapt his game to the Championship.
The R’s boss said: “I am delighted, delighted!
“He is a player who can score goals and he showed his quality against Rangers and Celtic last season.
“He is a hard worker, a good finisher and I think he is going to go on to become a good international for Scotland.”
Warburton added what he hopes Dyes can bring to the club in the future: “He is still young and raw, and there is a lot of development potential in him.
“A lot of good work has been done and he has worked very hard in Scotland, and we hope very much that we can help him move to the next level.”
He is the third player to join the R’s this summer, following the arrivals of George Thomas and Luke Amos from Leicester City and Tottenham.
