QPR defender Jack Robinson has joined Nottingham Forest on a free transfer. Here are three players who the R’s could sign to replace him-
Matthew Clarke, Portsmouth- Like Robinson, Clarke can play as either a left-back or a centre-back so would be a similar option. The 21-year-old is being tipped for a big future in the game and would be a good long-term signing for QPR. Clarke has played over 100 games so far in his career, having started out at Ipswich Town before moving to Portsmouth in 2015.
Cedric Kipre, Motherwell- The Ivorian centre-back has been linked with a move to Hull City recently but QPR should move in for him. The former Leicester City man impressed last season in the Scottish Premier League for Motherwell and is still only 21 years-old. Kipre could leave the Scottish side this summer for the right price and he would be ideal for Steve McClaren’s side. He joined Leicester in 2014 having played for French giants PSG at youth level but was released by the Foxes last summer. He has now re-kindled his career with Motherwell and could be rewarded with a move to the Championship now.
Scott McKenna, Aberdeen- The Scotland international burst onto the scene last season for Aberdeen and has become a key player for them. The 21-year-old is another who has a bright future ahead of them and should be targeted by QPR. McKenna is a left footed defender, similarly to Robinson, and is younger so has potential to grow into a big player for McClaren.
