QPR

Rangers man edges closer to permanent Ibrox departure

Rangers defender, Lee Wallace’s move to QPR has edged a step closer after the 31-year-old underwent a medical with the Championship club according to Football Insider. 

Wallace is out of contract at the end of this month, and he’s evidently got his eyes set on a permanent move away from the Scottish giants ahead of next season.

The experienced left-back has struggled for game time with Rangers in recent months, having been restricted to just 55 minutes of football last season.

Rangers boss, Steven Gerrard seemingly doesn’t see Wallace as part of his plans, which means that a move to QPR is looking like it’ll be confirmed in the near future.

A source told Football Insider that the move is expected to be announced as early as next week, after the international set of fixtures have reached a conclusion.

QPR could certainly benefit from having a player of his experience in their squad, as they look to finish higher in the Championship table, after a poor run of form towards the end of the season saw them finish 19th in last year’s campaign.

Jake Bidwell recently departed the club after not having his contracted renewed at Loftus Road, and QPR boss, Mark Warburton is seemingly wasting no time at all in finding a replacement.

The Verdict: 

This would be a good signing by QPR.

Wallace is an experienced defender and would add something to this QPR team both on and off the pitch, which is exactly the type of player they need.

This is a shrewd bit of business by the Hoops.
