Wycombe boss Paul Lambert has completed the signing of Millwall's Jack Obersteller.

The 18-year-old left-back, released by the Lions, has signed a one-year deal with the Chairboys after impressing Lambert while on trial towards the end of last season.

Obersteller becomes Lambert's eighth summer signing as he builds for next season's League Two promotion push.

"We had Jack along for training towards the end of last season and he also played a couple of reserve games for us," Lambert told the club's official website.

"He showed enough ability to impress us and we've decided to give him a chance.

"Jack was released by Millwall but that doesn't bother me. Sometimes in football you have to take a step backwards to go forwards and we're hoping that will be the case with him.

"I want to stress that he's not yet ready for the first team, but we think he could be one for the future."

Meanwhile, Wanderers have suspended talks with Queens Park Rangers over the possible transfer of Tommy Doherty.

The Northern Ireland international, who spent most of last season on loan at Adams Park, is currently recovering after having emergency surgery to remove his appendix and is not expected to be fit to play until October.

Wanderers' managing director Steve Hayes told the club's official website: "We felt there was no point in continuing our talks with QPR because Tommy clearly won't be available to play for sometime.

"However, it doesn't mean that we have ended out interest in signing him."
