Republic of Ireland Under-17 international Sinclair Armstrong has joined Championship side Queens Park Rangers from Shamrock Rovers. 

Armstrong made his Rovers debut in the FAI Cup against Drogheda United when he was still just 15 in 2018, but has been lining out for Shamrock Rovers II in the SSE Airtricity League First Division this season.

The striker will initially join up with the Rs Under-18 side.

Armstrong had been linked with a move to Hoffenheim earlier in the year, with Bundesliga rivals Schalke also reported to have been keeping tabs on the Dubliner.
