QPR have signed former Chelsea trainee Jordan Hibbert on a six-month contract.

Midfielder Hibbert, who was released by Barnsley in January, has impressed since being handed a trial at Loftus Road and has now been given the chance to earn a longer-term deal.

Hibbert, 19, said: "It's a great opportunity for me and I'm just really grateful to Neil Warnock. It's up to me now to prove that I'm worth keeping at the club."

He subsequently had a trial at Leeds before being recommended to QPR boss Warnock's right-hand man Mick Jones.
