Matt Ingram has told Hull City’s website it was time for him to move on after “a tough time” at QPR.
Goalkeeper Ingram, 25, has signed a three-year contract with the Tigers after moving for an undisclosed fee.
Signed from Wycombe in 2016, Ingram had to wait for a run in the QPR side before being installed as number one following last year’s sale of Alex Smithies to Cardiff City.
He performed poorly and was replaced by Joe Lumley, who made 46 appearances last season and will compete for a place with Kelly.
“I think it was always in my mind to make a move this summer,” Ingram admitted.
“I had a tough time at QPR and didn’t play a lot of games, so I felt that I needed a fresh start.
“When Hull City came calling it was a no-brainer for me when it came to making a decision.”
Meanwhile, QPR have rejected an offer from Sheffield United for Luke Freeman.
An initial offer from Millwall for Matt Smith has been turned down but the two clubs remain in discussions.
And R’s boss Mark Warburton is looking to seal the loan signings of at least two Premier League youngsters.
