Why Neil Warnock is delighted to have signed QPR goalkeeper Joe Lumley as Middlesbrough confirm transfer agreement
Middlesbrough have agreed a deal to sign goalkeeper Joe Lumley when his contract at QPR expires this summer.
The 26-year-old stopper underwent his medical at the Rockliffe on Wednesday morning and will hope to fight for the No 1 jersey on Teesside
Boro needed to strengthen their options between the sticks after Marcus Bettinelli’s loan deal from Fulham expired.
Fellow goalkeeper Jordan Archer will also be out of contract at Boro this summer.
Boro boss Neil Warnock told the club’s website: "I'm delighted to have signed Joe. I've always rated him highly and I look forward to him joining us.
"I know he's excited about coming here and he can't wait to play in front of the Riverside crowd."
Lumley was QPR’s first-choice goalkeeper during the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons but lost his place to Seny Dieng this campaign.
He made just five Championship appearances for Rangers this term but did impress during a 2-1 win over Boro in April.
