The Club is delighted to announce that it has reached agreement with QPR for the transfer of promising young player Dean Parrett.Dean, 15, will come into our Academy on a student registration before joining us full-time as a scholar in July 2008. An attacking midfielder, he helped England Under-16s retain the Victory Shield against Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland in October last year.

Sporting Director Damien Comolli said: “Dean is exactly the kind of player we want to attract to our Club, a player who will be part of the next generation to come through to the first team.

“He is an extremely talented young player who has that rare combination of pace, aggression and creativity.”

Academy Manager John McDermott added: “Dean has played wide right, wide left and in central midfield and as a Year 10 or Under-15 player, has done extremely well up against older boys.

“He’s very level-headed, has potential, a desire to succeed and that’s fantastic raw material to work with. Dean comes into a rich pool of talent able to stretch him, and he will stretch them. We’ve four internationals in our Under-16 age group and he makes it five.”
