QPR confirm signing of Cameron

QPR: Geoff Cameron

QPR have confirmed the signing of Geoff Cameron.

West London Sport revealed in March that Rangers would look to sign Cameron on a permanent deal this summer, later revealed that he was discussing a financial settlement with Stoke and on Wednesday revealed that he was set to undergo a medical before completing the move.

Cameron, who recently turned 34, spent last season on loan with the R’s and had a year remaining on his Stoke contract. He reached an agreement with the Potters on Wednesday, paving the way for him to move on.

He has signed a one-year deal at Loftus Road with the option of a further year.

Cameron is expected to play in this weekend’s pre-season friendly against Watford.

Rangers, who will face Stoke on the opening day of the season, signed forward Jan Mlakar, 20, on a season-long loan from Brighton on Wednesday.

But they will have to bide their time in the all-important pursuit of a more seasoned striker, just as they did last summer when targeting Nahki Wells and Tomer Hemed.

This time around Rangers are pursuing West Ham’s Jordan Hugill and have also been offered a potential deal to take Jordan Rhodes on loan from Sheffield Wednesday.

Manager Mark Warburton would like to bring in Scott Hogan, who previously played under him at Brentford and is not in Aston Villa’s first-team plans.

Meanwhile, Toni Leistner looks set to leave, having fallen out of favour since Warburton’s recent arrival.
