“He (McNab) wanted to take me to United, but he also spoke to a coach at Blackpool,” Osayi-Samuel said in an interview with The Independent.

“I talked to my mum and dad and they said there’d be a lot bigger chance of me making it at Blackpool. That’s what made the decision for me. 

“I was so keen to play, I didn’t care where it was, I’d never been at a proper team before and I was willing to sacrifice everything. When the chance came, I grabbed at it with both hands.”

Osayi-Samuel was in the youth team of Blackpool from 2014 to 2015 before graduating into the first team.

After spending two seasons with the first team (2015 – 2017), the 22-year-old switched to QPR in 2017.

And prior to the suspension of the English football leagues due to the coronavirus outbreak, Osayi-Samuel has scored six goals, provided eight assists in 32 appearances for QPR in all competitions this season.
