Exeter City's David Wheeler joins QPR

Exeter City's David Wheeler has joined Championship side QPR for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old winger had played for City since 2013.

Last season Wheeler scored 21 goals in 46 appearances to help the Grecians reach the League Two play-off final at Wembley – a match in which he scored.

It was clear following last season’s performances that David was going to have plenty of offers to move forward with his career this summer and, while we didn’t want to see him leave, we are proud of his moving to a Championship club and hope this underlines still further our commitment to player development.

David made it clear that he wanted to take this opportunity and once we felt we could be compensated satisfactorily, and make transfer dealings of our own to strengthen, we were comfortable with David’s transfer.

We wish him all the best and hope to see him back at St James Park in the future.

– Paul Tisdale, Exeter City Manager
