Reportedly in-demand Rangers linked Livingston striker Lyndon Dykes has officially moved to English Championship Queens Park Rangers in a reported £2m move.

The Australian born forward has been subject to intense transfer speculation over the last few months with Rangers heavily linked with a move for the player.

But after Livingston reportedly rejected a couple of bids from Championship Barnsley the West Lothian club have struck a deal with ex-Gers gaffer Mark Warburton for the striker.

Lyndon Dykes, 24, impressed for Livingston last season with his physical style and ability to lead the line evident throughout the Scottish Premiership season.


Dykes netted 12 goals for Livingston last season and finished the club’s top scorer, notoriously giving £7m Celtic defender Christopher Julien a hard time both times the Parkhead club travelled to Livi.

Speaking to the official QPR website, Dykes expressed his delight at joining the Rs at Loftus Road:

“I’m buzzing, obviously!” said Dykes.

“Being at Livingston was great but to be at a club like this, I just want to put my head down now and kick on.

“I am a player who works hard for the team. I like to work hard for my team-mates, I want them to know that I’m putting it in for them. I am always going to give 100%.

“I am always willing to learn and hopefully I can score a few goals as well.”

Rangers’ reported interest in the player appeared to die after the club splashed out a reported £6m to bring Kemar Roofe and Cedric Itten to the club.
