Transfer news: QPR sign Robert Green

QPR have completed the signing of former West Ham goalkeeper Rob Green.

Mark Hughes made the move for the England international, who last represented his country against Norway in May.

“It was important we brought another quality keeper into the group,” Hughes told the club’s official site.

“Rob is obviously someone with vast experience at international and Premier League level and his pedigree speaks for itself.

“He’s got all the characteristics of a top keeper and he’ll be a huge addition for us who will stimulate the goalkeeping group, which can only be good for the squad as a whole.”

Green added: “I’m delighted to be here. I’m excited about the challenge ahead and hugely encouraged by the direction in which the owners and Mark Hughes are looking to take the club.

“It’s an exciting period for everybody connected to QPR and I can’t wait to get started.”

Green could line up against his former team-mates on September 29.
