Young goalkeeper Tommaso Trani has joined Queens Park Rangers on a two-year deal following his release by AC Milan.
The 17-year-old came through the ranks at the San Siro but was allowed to leave after their youth system was restructured.
QPR's head of youth development Steve Gallen said: "I am so happy to sign Tommaso.
"He is big, strong and has a fantastic attitude. He gets very annoyed when he concedes a goal even in training, and that's what you want. He is a winner and is desperate to do well.
"As soon as I saw him walk through the door at the training ground, I thought: 'Wow'.
"And within a minute of watching him train I wanted to sign him."
