Round-up: One in and possibly one out at QPR, Phillips urged to stay, Pedro and Ream sign

It’s been another busy day at QPR, who have finalised the signing of keeper Alex Smithies but could lose Rob Green.

Smithies, 25, completed his move from Huddersfield Town to Loftus Road, where Rangers hoped he would compete with Green.

However, having made an enquiry about Green’s availability, West Ham are looking to tie up a deal in time for him to be available for their game against Bournemouth this weekend.

Meanwhile, former QPR player and manager Ian Holloway has urged Matt Phillips to stay at the club.

Current boss Chris Ramsey believes his team are heading in the right direction following their fine win at Wolves his next target is for Rangers to tighten up at the back.

Co-chairman Tony Fernandes and several players posted jubilant messages on Twitter following the win at Molineux.

Fulham, on the other hand, were beaten at Hull and manager Kit Symons fears Marcus Bettinelli could face a long spell on the sidelines after the keeper suffered a nasty-looking knee injury.

On a brighter note for the Whites, they have formally completed the signing of United States defender Tim Ream from Bolton – he rejected a move to QPR, who also had an offer for him accepted.

Andre Gray has also rejected a move – to Bristol City. The Brentford striker held talks with the Robins but appears to be holding out for a move to Hull.

Pedro stalled over a move to Manchester United because he was holding out for a move to Chelsea. The Blues today completed the Spain forward’s £21m transfer from Barcelona.

And in rugby union, Harlequins have named Danny Care as their new captain, replacing Joe Marler.
