Loan watch: How Seny Dieng is faring away from QPR

Published

on

Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Seny Dieng is enjoying an impressive campaign on loan at Doncaster Rovers this season, with attention starting to turn his future at the West London club.

Since arriving at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium in 2016, the Swiss stopper has had five separate loan spells and is yet to make a senior appearance for the R’s.

However, his latest spell at the Keepmoat Stadium is proving to be one of his most successful to date, with the 25-year-old managing 27 league starts and impressing on a regular basis.

With the second highest save percentage in the division and nine clean sheets, he has helped the Yorkshire side move into ninth in the table.

The Dons also have the third-best defensive record in the division, having conceded 33 goals from their 34 matches, with Dieng himself conceding just 26 from his 27 games.

In his 27 matches, he has made 70 saves, including one penalty, while his distribution has proven a strength with only Matthew Gilks completing more shorts passes per match.

Standing at 6ft 4in he is imposing in stature, but also possesses good speed and agility.

QPR have struggled defensively all season and have conceded 62 times in their 37 fixtures, the third worst record in the division.

Liam Kelly was brought in place of Joe Lumley in January and while he has done well, there is certainly an opportunity for Dieng to impress on his return.

The R’s have limited funds and with other areas in the squad they will want to invest in, a good end to the season could see Dieng taking the starting shirt next term.
