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.

Exeter City fell at the final hurdle in their bid for promotion as they lost the League Two play-off final to Blackpool at Wembley.
Paul Tisdale's side made the worst possible start and were behind within 2 minutes as Brad Potts gave Blackpool the lead after a well-worked move. Exeter grew into the game and were level before half time thanks to a calm lob from David Wheeler.
But in the second half Blackpool took control through a Mark Cullen tap in.Ollie Watkins then headed over late on as Blackpool held on for victory. The defeat means a long journey home for those travelling back to Devon this evening but they may be consoled by their side's turnaround this season.
As late as December 17th they had not seen a home win at St James Park but a remarkable run of form and a late winner in the play off semi finals brought them to Wembley.
This game was a step too far though and it may be even harder to stomach defeat given the Grecians' bitter rivals Plymouth Argyle did secure promotion.
There was also no Exeter double in London play off finals as Paul Tisdale's team were unable to emulate their neighbours the Exeter Chiefs who won their play off final against Wasps at Twickenham on Saturday.
