Dunfermline Athletic have signed midfielder Reece Cole after his departure from English Championship side QPR.

The attack-minded playmaker enjoyed a successful loan stint at Partick Thistle from Brentford in the 2019/20 season. He spent most of last term without a club before QPR offered him a short-term contract earlier this year.

He was not able to make inroads into QPR’s senior side and now joins Peter Grant’s Dunfermline on a one-year deal for the cinch Championship season.

A statement reads: “Dunfermline Athletic are pleased to confirm the signing of 23-year-old Reece Cole on a one year contract with an option of a second year. The central midfielder – who began his career with Brentford and was born in nearby Hillingdon – has been on trial with Dunfermline.

“Home fans may recall him scoring against Dunfermline while on loan to Partick Thistle two seasons back. Cole made just one senior appearance for Brentford prior to his release last summer. On 15 March 2021, Cole signed a short-term contract with QPR.”
