QPR add Burnley defender Jimmy Dunne and Norwich full-back McCallum to their squad

QPR have signed Jimmy Dunne from Burnley and Sam McCallum on loan from Norwich City.

Dunne joins for an undisclosed fee from Burnley, and has signed a three-year deal with QPR.

Speaking to QPR’s club website, Dunne said: “I am really excited. It’s a massive step for me. With the push that the lads had during the second half of last season it would be nice to be part of something like that this season.

“I really want to come here and be part of the club. From the outside looking in, this looks like a really good environment to be part of.

“I am definitely passionate, I want to defend and I’m a winner. This league is going to test me and there is a lot of work for me to do but if I can concentrate on my defending, I am sure the ball playing will follow.”

McCallum arrives on a season-long loan from Norwich City. The left-back made 41 appearances on loan at Coventry City during the 2020-21 campaign.

McCallum said: “I’m proper excited to get going. I can’t wait to meet the boys and get out on the training pitch.

“When QPR requested the loan, it was a no-brainer. This is a massive club.

“I am quite an athletic wing-back, obviously you need to be these days. I like getting up and down the wing and providing width for the team.

“I want to get some game time but I know I will have healthy competition from Lee Wallace. I am fit and ready to go, I just can’t wait to get started.”
