Transfer situation of QPR pair becomes clearer as Friday’s 5pm deadline looms



QPR are yet to receive any offers for goalkeepers Joe Lumley and Liam Kelly a little more than 48 hours until the domestic transfer window closes, according to West London Sport.

The report believes that Mark Warburton wants to loan out one of the two and have put the pair on the transfer market.

Lumley is a product of Rangers’ Academy and started the campaign as QPR’s first-choice goalkeeper, but a disappointing performance during last months 3-2 defeat at Birmingham City saw him dropped.

The 25-year-old is approaching 100 R’s appearances since breaking into the first-team setup, but his errors have proved too frequent and he hasn’t featured since the game at St Andrew’s.

Seny Dieng, who spent last season on loan at Doncaster, has been handed the number one shirt, but perhaps even more concerning was that Lumley wasn’t even named on the bench for QPR’s previous two Championship matches – with Liam Kelly preferred.

It means that Lumley’s Rangers future remains in serious doubt, whilst Kelly could also depart this week, although the West Londoners are yet to receive any interest from the underfire pair.

Have these 15 current QPR players been capped at senior international level? – Yes or no?

The Verdict

This is an extremely difficult situation for Rangers.

Lumley has entered the final year of his contract and know that keeping him beyond Friday could mean they lose him on a free next summer, but at present, he’s Warburton’s third-choice goalkeeper.

But whilst his form has obviously been shocking for a while, Lumley is the more experienced goalkeeper and therefore shouldn’t be the one sold in this situation.
