Transfer Deadline Day News.

Well the transfer deadline day has come around once again and I will give you the details of any deal that involves a Rangers' player on this day. Although after today no more permanent transfers can be made, clubs can still arrange loan deals until March.

The first deal of the day has seen striker Alessandro Pellicori leave the club and join Serie B outfit AC Mantova until the end of the season.


Pellicori joined the club after spending all of pre season with the club and scored two goals during that time. This was enough to offer the striker a three year deal to stay at the R's.
First team opportunities have been limited for the tall striker and he's only managed to score one goal, against Exeter in the League Cup, in his ten appearances.


Gareth Ainsworth, who left the club after seven and a half years service on Saturday in an emotional farewell, has joined up with Wycombe Wanderers after enjoying a short loan spell there earlier in the season.

Ainsworth joins the Chairboys on an 18 month deal.
On a side note, former R's winger Kevin McLeod has also joined Ainsworth at Adams Park on a 3 month deal.


Good Luck Gaz!


The first incoming deal has finally been done and announced at lunchtime and, shock horror, its a striker!

Marcus Bent joins the club on loan (you would never of guessed we'd be loaning yet more players) until the end of the season.


Bent joins the club from Birmingham having already been out on loan at fellow Championship club Middlebrough. He made 8 appearances and scored no goals during his time on Tyneside.

Bent is a Hammersmith born lad who started his career at local rivals Brentford in 1995. Since then Bent has accumulated 12 different clubs which include - Brentford, Crystal Palace, Port Vale, Sheffield United, Blackburn Rovers, Ipswich Town, Leicester City (loan), Everton, Charlton Athletic, Wigan Athletic (loan), Birmingham City and Middlesbrough (loan).

Bent's best prolific spells have come during his times at Sheffield United (20 goals in 48 appearances) and Ipswich Town (21 goals in 61 appearances).
Since 2004 Bent has made 172 appearances for all clubs and has only scored on 21 occasions in that time.

Welcome Marcus, I hope you enjoy you're time here at QPR!


The second incoming deal of the day sees another striker..... YES A STRIKER coming in.

Tamas Priskin comes in from fellow Championship side Ipswich on loan (who'd of guessed it!) until the end of the season


Priskin started his career at Hungarian outfit Gyori ETO FC in 2003 and racked up 67 appearances and scored 24 goals during his three year spell at the club before departing for Watford in 2006 for a fee in the region of 150k rising up to £1million.
Priskin scored 15 goals in 68 appearances for the club and after struggling to hold hold a first team place in 2008 he was loaned out to Preston for the remainder of the season and scored twice in five appearances.
In the summer Priskin moved to Ipswich in a £1.7million transfer. He has only managed to score once in his 17 appearances this season and will hopefully look to turn the corner during his time at the Superhoops.

Welcome Tamas, we hope you enjoy your stay at Loftus Road.

    I wish all the new guys well and welcome them to the club. I can't help but feeling that Gaz leaving is a void that no number of loanees could fill however.

    Thanks for the updates on what is going on at LR.

    Looking to the positive, let's hope that with good coaching and appraoch play from the rest of the team, our new strikers can confound their critics and recent strike rate records and put the ball in the back of the net for the R's!

    Hopefully now we have two tall strikers in the club and Lee Cook coming back to fitness and looking pretty dangerous on Saturday we may actually regain that scoring feeling once more. My only worry is that the two guys that have come in are not so prolific and we may still struggle up front, I really hope I'm wrong.
