Queens Park Rangers have confirmed that young goalkeeper Seny Dieng has joined Whitehawk, the club’s official website is reporting.
Seny Dieng leaves Queens Park Rangers to join non-league outfit Whitehawk on a short loan arrangement.
The highly-rated youngster joins up with Whitehawk on a one month loan deal, which will expire on the 25th November.
Dieng has played six matches in goal for QPR’s under-23 outfit this season as they sit top of their division under the guidance of Paul Hall.
Currently at QPR, Alex Smithies is the number one choice between the sticks.
Vying for a spot in goal is Joe Lumley while Matt Ingram has been farmed out on loan to Northampton Town to aid his development.
With his path to the first team blocked by a number of other goalkeepers, Seny Dieng has been allowed to leave and join Whitehawk to get some experience of playing first team football at a relatively competitive level.
Whitehawk currently compete in the National League South, which is the sixth tier of English football.
The Sussex based outfit are struggling this season and could face relegation so they will be hoping that Dieng proves to be a shrewd signing.
I am a firm believer in giving youngster, especially goalkeepers, first team opportunities.
Being loaned out to lower league and non-league teams prepares the youngsters for the first team and is more realistic than under-23 football.
This loan move will be a real learning curve for Seny Dieng, who will face plenty of action given that Whitehawk are 22nd in the league.
