Teenage left-back heads to Chairboys until January 1 and will be managed at Adams Park by ex-QPR midfielder Gareth Ainsworth

Queens Park Rangers youngster Jack Williams has joined League Two side Wycombe Wanderers on loan until January 1.

The 18-year-old left-back moves temporarily to Adams Park, where he will be managed by former QPR winger Gareth Ainsworth.

Williams made 19 appearances for the Rs’ under-23 team last term and also enjoyed a loan spell with Bishop’s Stortford in the National League South.

But Ainsworth is confident the QPR teenager has the ability to cope with a step up in quality in League Two while on loan with the Chairboys.

“Jack’s got a lot of potential, which we’ve seen in the two games, in training and also in our training match at QPR when he was on the other team,” Ainsworth told the Wycombe website.

“He’s a talented defender, but he can also get forward well which gives us another option down the left-hand side.

“He will learn a lot from Joe Jacobson and from being involved in a first-team squad on a day-to-day basis, and I’m sure he will grab his chance with both hands whenever he’s called upon to help the team.

“We have a very good relationship with QPR, a club which is of course close to my heart from my playing days, and I’d like to thank Ian Holloway and his staff for allowing us to bring Jack to Adams Park.”
