English Championship side Queens Park Rangers (QPR) has handed 19-year young Henry Ochieng a trial - that's according to reports from London.

The youngster was freed up from National League side Leyton Orient in mid-March and could be teed up at Loftus Road by QPR depending on how he impresses during the trial.

To gauge him, QPR's U23 side handed him a test on Monday against their Nottingham Forest  counterparts at Harlington. The penalty laden clash - that witnessed three of four awarded spot kicks missed, ended in a 2-2 stalemate. 

Ochieng, born in Redbridge to Kenyan parents is a former England U13 player. He spent six years at the West Ham Academy before being released.

He was to sign a two-year scholarship with Leyton Orient thereafter before going on to earn a pro deal in December 2016.

His release from East London club Leyton Orient in March was informed by lack of game time under manager Justin Edinburgh. 

He made just six appearances for Orient this term, one game less compared to the previous season that ended in relegation from League Two.
