Steven Caulker signs for QPR

Published Add your comment

Queens Park Rangers have announced they have bagged English defender Steven Caulker on a long term deal, believed to be in the region of £8.5 million, according to Sky Sports.

In addition to the fans’ delight of signing a defender who has a lot of potential, given his age,
Rangers have also got their hands on former Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand, in a move which should delight supporters.

In an interview, Caulker spoke about “Being able to play with Rio was also a big draw. He has been a role model of mine for many years, along with Ledley King.

"To have the opportunity to play alongside him was something I felt I couldn't miss out on. Our first aim this season has to be to get to 40 points to make sure we stay up. That's our first goal.”

Rangers manager Harry Redknapp added: “Steven’s a top player, so we’re delighted to have him at QPR.

"I know the ability he has and I think it’s an important signing for the club – for the here and now, and for the future.”

In recent seasons, QPR have been somewhat of a yo-yo club, but with their newly acquired solidarity in the back line, they may now be looking forward to settling comfortably into a
league, whether that be the Premier League or the Championship.
