Queens Park Rangers have confirmed another signing in what has been a busy summer for Harry Redknapp and Tony Fernandes, with Reading goalkeeper Alex McCarthy arriving at the club for an undisclosed fee, despite late speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool.

 

Highly rated young stopper McCarthy arrives at Loftus Road with more than 100 senior league appearances to his name, including 70 for Reading and 44 during a season-long loan spell with Yeovil Town in League One.

McCarthy has also been given an England call-up in the past thanks to his fine form towards the end of Reading’s final season in the Premier League, although he wasn’t given an appearance by manager Roy Hodgson and is still eligible to appear or the Republic of Ireland.

He arrives at the club to provide competition for first choice goalkeeper Robert Green, himself a former England international, but the 24 year-old is likely to be seen as the long term holder of the number one joursey with the West London club.

Rangers have started the season in frustrating fashion, losing their opening Premier League games against Hull City and Tottenham Hotspur before a shocking League Cup defeat against League Two outfit Burton Albion – with Harry Redknapp’s side failing to score a single goal during the course of the three defeats.
