'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rangers Swoop Connolly From Arsenal

Queens Park Rangers announced their second signing of the day, with former young gun Matthew Connolly joining the SW12 side.

The England U-21 defender, previously on-loan with Colchester has signed a three and a half year contract for an undisclosed fee.

He told the official website...

'It's very difficult to make the breakthrough at a club like Arsenal, so when QPR made an offer I knew it was the right time to move on.'

'Arsenal provided me with a great launch pad, but I need to be playing first-team football at my age and this is a fantastic club for me to pursue my career at.'


The 20-year-old continued...

'I know what the Championship is all about after my spell at Colchester United and I'm delighted to be part of what appears to be a very bright future at this football club.'

Connolly will wear number 16.

If Wenger felt he would've made the grade at Arsenal theres no way he'd have let him go, hope he does well for you boys though and I desperately hope you tonk the Russians.
