Luke Amos joins QPR on season long loan
Congratulations to Luke Amos who completes his season long loan move to Championship club QPR.
After a successful loan move to Stevenage in January 2018, completing 16 appearances and scoring 2 goals, Luke returned to Spurs for a thrilling pre-season with the first team. The pre-season tour of the US included friendlies against giants; Roma, Barcelona and AC Milan, with Luke putting in some impressive performances throughout the tour.
Following on from the tour, Luke was handed his senior debut from the bench on the opening day of the season against Newcastle United.
An exciting time for Luke, who was looking to kick on at Spurs but the early season promise would eventually turn to heartbreak. During a Spurs U23 match he ruptured his anterior cruciate knee ligament keeping him out for the remainder of the season… but now he’s back!
Catching the eye of The R’s new boss, Mark Warburton, Luke’s move to the Championship side is undoubtably an exciting one.
“It has been a tough nine months but I am really excited now,” he told www.qpr.co.uk.
“I haven’t wasted a day in that whole time. I feel physically fit and the next step for me is being back in games and that’s something I am looking forward to.
“I feel like I was hungry to succeed before – but now I am absolutely starving! It has been such a tough journey and I want it now more than ever.
“I want to enjoy my football but that enjoyment comes from winning lots of games and playing lots of games, so that’s my target.”
Amos also revealed that the opportunity to work with Mark Warburton was a big factor in his decision to come to QPR, explaining: “I have heard good things about him from players that have worked with him so when I got told about the move, for me it was a no brainer.”
Warburton added: “I know the quality that Luke has and how he can impact matches.
“He is clever on the ball, has technical ability and a passion for the game. I have admired him from afar and with Tottenham being my local team, I have seen him many times and watched him work.
“He can get forward, he sees the pass, sees the opportunity, opens up play and can create in tight areas. He is a strong midfield talent who will really push hard to play week in, week out.
“I am very grateful to Mauricio Pochettino, his staff and John McDermott who have helped this loan to happen.”
Good luck Luke and go and Be Exceptional.
