QPR have signed Luke Freeman from Championship rivals Bristol City, the London club have confirmed.

Freeman, 24, has signed a three-and-a-half year deal at Loftus Road.

I’m really pleased to be here and to get the deal sorted in this window.

I feel there’s great potential for me to improve here as a player and kick on from what I’ve achieved in recent years with Bristol City.

I’m hungry, enthusiastic and determined to keep improving. I can’t wait to get going for QPR now.

Hull shrugged off their poor Premier League form to reach the last eight of the EFL Cup with a 2-1 victory at Bristol City.

The Tigers had lost all four league games since winning at Stoke in the previous round of the competition.

But goals either side of half-time from centre-backs Harry Maguire - his first for Hull - and Michael Dawson took the Tigers into the quarter-finals for the second successive year, despite Lee Tomlin's stoppage-time consolation.

Bristol City boss distances himself from Villa job

Bristol City boss Lee Johnson has distanced himself from the vacant Aston Villa job.

The 35-year-old is being tracked by Villa as they look to replace Roberto Di Matteo after sacking the Italian on Monday following a poor start to the season.

Johnson is on the club's list along with caretaker boss Steve Clarke, Brentford manager Dean Smith, Huddersfield's David Wagner and Steve Bruce, who is available after leaving Hull in the summer.

Former Oldham boss Johnson only joined the Robins on a three-and-a-half year deal from Barnsley in February and insisted he is happy at Ashton Gate.

"I always dreamed of being here and earning my stripes as a coach, so why would I want to leave when I'm so happy," he told the Bristol Post.

"I'm not going to comment on other things, I just wanted people to know how I feel. I'm fiercely ambitious, don't get me wrong, but my ambition is being channelled into Bristol City. This is my place.

"I have a really exciting group of players and I want to see where it can take us. Crowds are on the up at Ashton Gate, we have a fantastic revamped stadium and this is a club going places."
