Championship side QPR have beaten Watford to the signing of United full-back Ethan Laird on loan.

Laird, who started in the last pre-season friendly against Rayo Vallecano, has provisionally agreed to join Championship outfit Queens Park Rangers on loan according to The Telegraph.

Watford were also keen on signing Laird but could not guarantee the right-back game time during talks with Manchester United.

Manchester United will only accept a loan move Laird if the right-back will play regularly to help his development.

Laird has spent time away from Old Trafford with MK Dons, Swansea and Bournemouth in the past.
