QPR pounce for Ikeme

Hart happy to bring in Wolves keeper on loan

Ikeme: QPR loan

Queens Park Rangers have snapped up Wolves goalkeeper Carl Ikeme on loan until the end of January.

Ikeme has headed out of Molineux for the third time this season after undertaking loan stints at Charlton Athletic and Sheffield United in recent months.

He will provide competition for QPR's regular No.1 Radek Cerny after Rhys Taylor returned to Chelsea after a loan spell at Loftus Road.

Recently-appointed QPR boss Paul Hart is happy to have landed a keeper of Ikeme's quality and expects his new signing to challenge Cerny for a first-team spot.

"We're very grateful to Wolves for allowing him to come out on loan to us," Hart told the club's official website.

"He's a young goalkeeper who I know they think a lot of and he's joining us to gain some experience.

"He is certainly someone who I consider to be a great addition to the squad.

"He is coming here to challenge for the No.1 jersey, not just to warm the bench as a back-up."
