Midfielder Ward seals move to QPR

Ward is set to move from the A-League to the Championship
Australian midfielder Nick Ward has signed a two-year deal with QPR after completing his move from Perth Glory.

The 21-year-old, who has represented Australia at Under-20 level, obtained permission from Football Federation Australia to leave the A-League team.

"I want to cement my place in the team, and I've got a target of getting QPR into the play-offs next May," Ward told Rangers' website.

"I like to get the ball down and pass it, get forward and score goals."

But an FFA spokesman said: "It's disappointing to see one of our best players leaving the A-League to play in a second-tier competition in England.

"His decision is against the advice of the national team management."
