Queens Park Rangers have signed former Bristol City forward Jay Emmanuel-Thomas on a three-year deal.

The 24-year-old former Arsenal trainee scored 33 goals in 103 appearances in all competitions for Bristol City after joining from Ipswich Town in 2013.

Last month the Robins confirmed they would not be offering him an extension to his deal, which expires this summer.

"I've always admired Jay and I'm really delighted to bring him here," QPR boss Chris Ramsey told the club website.

"He is already a very good player, but his potential to keep improving is fantastic. This is now a real opportunity for him to really kick on.

"We'll give him the platform to play and express himself. He's got flair, he's a good runner with the ball and he's got great versatility."
