QPR sign Green

Queens Park Rangers have announced the signing of England goalkeeper Rob Green on a two-year deal.

The 32-year-old is coming out of contract at newly promoted West Ham United and is set to move across London on July 1.

Green made over 200 appearances for the Hammers and held the England number one shirt for the 2010 World Cup before falling behind Joe Hart in the pecking order prior to Euro 2012.

Green’s new manager at Loftus Road, Mark Hughes, feels the acquisition of the 32-year-old is important as his side look to avoid a close-run English Premier League relegation battle next season.

He told the club’s official website: “It was important we brought another quality keeper into the group.

“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.”

The former West Ham shot-stopper is set to challenge Paddy Kenny for a spot between the sticks at QPR and said he was excited for what lies ahead.

“I’m delighted to be here,” Green said. “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.”
