QPR set to sign Andy Lonergan on a free transfer

QPR are ‘set to sign’ Andy Lonergan on a free transfer this summer – the former Liverpool man is due to leave West Brom this summer.

Lonergan, 37, is set to join QPR as back-up to Seny Dieng reports The Sun on Sunday (23.05.21, pg. 59).

Formerly of the likes of Leeds United, Liverpool, Bolton Wanderers and Wolves, Lonergan was last season at Stoke City before signing a short-term deal with West Brom.

Now though, the veteran stopper is set to leave the Baggies when his contract expires next month and The Sun on Sunday claim that QPR are ‘set to sign’ him after seeing Joe Lumley leave for Middlesbrough.

At 37, Lonergan has some valid experience backed up at both Premier League and Football League level, and he’d be an ideal back-up to Dieng who’s firmly established himself as Mark Warburton’s no.1 keeper.

QPR then look to move sharply to combat what could’ve been a problematic department this summer. Warburton having already lost Joe Lumley could yet lose Liam Kelly to Motherwell, with Joe Walsh set to be loaned out too.

Dillon Barnes is still on the books at QPR though – the 25-year-old has spent the season on loan at Burton Albion in League One but is yet to make his Championship debut for the Rs since his 2019 arrival.

Lonergan though will provide sufficient back-up to Dieng. Although he’s played as a second-choice keeper with his last few clubs, he’s impressed with the likes of Leeds, Bolton and Fulham in the past, having claimed Super Cup and Club World Cup medals with Liverpool.
