Less than four months after penning an emotional goodbye to Scottish giants Rangers, Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun has joined Queens Park Rangers on a one year contract. The former Brighton & Hove Albion ace
parted ways with Glasgow Rangers in June following expiration of his contract. An elated Balogun expressed delight at getting back to action.
“It is a big relief to know I can get back to action and I am looking forward to it,” Balogun told the club’s official website.
“We have been speaking for some weeks so I am happy we got it done.
“The manager is one of the main factors for me. When he left Rangers I messaged him and said in terms of a football brain he is one of the best I have worked with.”
Balogun hasn’t played since leaving Rangers at the end of last season but he is confident he can get up to speed quickly as he looks to get his career back on course.
“I have managed to keep myself fit,” he said.
“I haven’t been able to have team training so that is what I will try to catch up with as quickly as possible.
“The foundation of my fitness is there so it really shouldn’t take me long.”
