Championship club Queens Park Rangers have signed Brighton striker Jan Mlakar on a season-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old joined the Premier League side from NK Maribor in January, but was loaned straight back to the Slovenian outfit.

Mlakar scored 13 goals in 26 league appearances last season as Maribor won the league title.

“Jan is a very talented striker who we’ve been aware of for a while,” R’s boss Mark Warburton said.
