Just a happy coincidence then that he was already "on the radar of the club’s recruitment department for the past two years and his progress during that period has been closely monitored".

I guess these days any club worth their salt should at the very least be collecting statistical data on many players in multiple countries, so hopefully that's what they're doing. As Rbee pointed out, it's also good to see us looking overseas again, as it's an area we've rather neglected for a few years now.
Weren’t there question marks over what we do regarding singing players from Europe post Brexit, has there been any change / clarity on that?

It sounds a bit of a coincidence that he’s known of him for so long but it sounds like he’d been on the radar of SPL and Champ clubs so that sounds plausible that he’d be familiar.
You're right, I'd forgotten about that. There was some sort of points based system implemented, with the criteria being senior and youth international appearances, the quality of the selling club and the league they're in, and how many club appearances the player had made domestically. No idea whether or not any of that's changed, but I assume he qualifies whatever the rules are now.

Thanks for the clarification, that all sounds vaguely sensible which is a massive shock. Best not invoke the ire of football fans when pushing a populist agenda.

It’s at the stage where they have not put foot wrong and have no weaknesses but this sounds fairly encouraging

Where's the next Buzsaky?

Seems like he could be an interesting signing. Guess we won't know until we see him. If this is going to work for me though, the social media team and the website need to stop referring to 'our new Paal'. Driving me insane already.

I look forward to the novelty of having a professional footballer at QPR who can actually take a free kick or corner.
