Queens Park Rangers boss Mark Hughes has revealed his delight at securing the services of England goalkeeper Rob Green.
The West Ham United shotstopper was strongly linked with a move away from Upton Park, with his current deal set to end on July 1, and a number of Premier League clubs were believed to be interested in the 32-year-old.
However, Rangers, who are 9/2 to be relegated from the top flight next season with bet365, have won the race to sign Green and Hughes was pleased to have the veteran keeper on board at Loftus Road.
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.”
