Bristol City are considering a move for QPR goalkeeper Joe Lumley.

The Robins are in the hunt for a new shot stopper for next season and the fellow Championship ‘keeper is a target, according to Bristol Live.

Frank Fileding’s contract at Ashton Gate expires at the end of the campaign and Lee Johnson’s are expected to bring in a replacement.

Lumley, who is 24 years-old, has made the number one spot at QPR his own this season. He has played 41 games in all competitions for Hoops. His contract with the Hoops expires in 2021.

Lumley made his debut for the R’s in January 2016 in a FA Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest. He has obtained plenty of first-team experience out on loan at seven different clubs.

He has enjoyed spells at Bishop’s Stortford Town, Accrington Stanley, Morecambe, Stevenage, Bristol Rovers and then Blackpool last season.
