QPR have announced that goalkeeper Joe Lumley will leave the club to sign for Middlesbrough when his contract with the Rs expires this summer.
Lumley has been with the club for a number of years, after progressing through their academy system. He has made 84 appearances in total for QPR’s senior team.
But the shot-stopper has found regular game time hard to come by this season, with Lumley making just six appearances for the Rs.
He has often been behind Seny Dieng in the pecking order in Mark Warburton’s plans for the first-team, which resulted in him being sent out on loan to both Gillingham and Doncaster Rovers during the 2020/21 campaign.
Which clubs do these former QPR players play for nowadays?
He’s set to move to Middlesbrough though, with Neil Warnock looking to add to his squad ahead of the new league campaign, which gets under way in August.
Plenty of QPR supporters took to social media to react to the news of Lumley’s departure being confirmed this summer.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
would have been great to keep him around the club, but he’s young and deserves first team football. He’s shown he’s more than good enough at this level.
