Rangers Add a Bit More 'Punch'
QPR today announced that Southampton forward, Jason Puncheon, has joined on loan until January 2nd 2012. Unfortunately, the deal was done too late for us to announce anything last night, but has been officially confirmed by the Club today.
Puncheon was a close season target for the R's, with a deal that would have seen Kaspars Gorkss go the other way, but for one reason or another, the deal never materialised. But R's Gaffer, Neil Warnock has finally got his man...
Puncheon, 25, joined Southampton from Plymouth in 2010 but spent much of last season on loan at Millwall and the Premier League new boys, Blackpool. Puncheon has also had loan spells at MK Dons and also played for Barnet for two seasons.
On his latest aquisition, Neil Warnock told the Official QPR Website;
"It just made sense to give him an opportunity to come in until January and show us what he can do.
"This all happened very late in the day so I am very pleased we got him in.
"Jason is a good acquisition because he brings pace and plenty of desire.
"To be perfectly honest, he was so keen to come to QPR I think he would have paid us!
"He is desperate to do well, and that really impressed me."
All of us here at Lofty Heights would like to offer a warm welcome to QPR, Jason and wish you all the very best during your time in W12!!
Come on You R'sssssssssssss!!!
