Murphy signs for Premier League newcomers

FORMER Ipswich Town keeper Brian Murphy has completed a two-year deal with Premier League new-boys QPR.

The 28-year-old impressed manager Neil Warnock while on trial during pre-season and will now provide competition for current number one Paddy Kenny and Radek Cerny.

Murphy said: “It is great to be here. I am really looking forward to the new season and working with the goalkeepers.

“I am here to work hard, and anything extra will be a bonus. I want to be in that 18-man squad every week, but I know every player here wants the same thing.

“It is going to be a massive season for the club and one that I am looking forward to being a part of.”
