QPR confirm Murphy signing

QPR have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Brian Murphy on a two-year contract.

Murphy, 28, was a free agent, having left Ipswich when his contract expired at the end of last term.

He featured for the R’s during pre-season and manager Neil Warnock made it clear some time ago that he intended to sign the Irishman.

“I like Brian and am pleased with what I’ve seen of him while he’s been with us,” Warnock told West London Sport.

“He’s done well in the games he’s played and is a good lad to have around. I’ve been looking to add someone in that position.”

Warnock has indicated that Brazilian defender Bruno Perone, 24, will also be offered the chance to join QPR following his recent trial.

A number of Championship clubs have been monitoring Perone’s situation since his arrival in England.
