QPR have signed defensive midfielder Karl Henry from Wolves for a fee believed to be £1Million.
Henry, 30, had found himself left out in the cold at Molinuex last season and jumped at the chance to showcase his talents at a first team football level.
This signing even further hints on R’s captain Joey Barton’s departure from England. Barton has already agreed personal terms for the midfielder, but QPR are reluctant to settle on a fee. Barton and Henry are well known as enemies after a bust-up in the Wolves-QPR game in September 2011 following the fiery midfielder having to be restrained amid protests he had been elbowed by Henry in a late challenge.
The signing has been met with some anger by QPR fans, with some saying that they don’t need an ‘Old Man’ or someone who isn’t ‘Good enough for the Championship’; some of these fans though, were ones that criticised the signings of now QPR legends Shaun Derry and Clint Hill. But other fans are delighted by the signing saying ‘He’s a nasty little [player] that no one likes, he’ll easily boss the midfield’ and another fan page on Twitter saying ‘He will be brilliant, can hold up the ball and get the ball back after Taarabt’s silly mistakes, a Derry 2.0, so to speak.’
