West London Latest: Ex-Fulham stars reunite, QPR pre-season begins

Kieran Richardson 2

The latest transfer news from Fulham and Queens Park Rangers.


Kieran Richardson is looking forward to being reunited with Philippe Senderos, with the pair having joined Aston Villa this summer.

The pair played alongside each other at Fulham before Senderos left for Valencia on loan last season, with both now having left Craven Cottage on a permanent deal.

“Phil was at Fulham with me and he is a top pro,” he is quoted as saying by the Birmingham Mail.

“He’s a good centre-half and I’m sure he’ll give 100 per cent.

"He’s played for Arsenal, Milan, Everton. His resumé is very good and a player like that doesn’t play for those clubs for no reason.

"He’s a top, top guy, he’s very good in the dressing room. He’s a leader and he does talk a lot, which is good."


For the QPR squad, pre-season officially began today.

Harry Redknapp's side all reported for training, except those involved with the World Cup in Brazil.

The Rs will head to Germany - the land of the new world champions - for a training camp next Monday, while seven pre-season friendlies are scheduled to be played over the next few weeks.

In other QPR news, the west London side have been linked with a move for Netherlands and Norwich City midfielder Leroy Fer.

According to reports, Redknapp is prepared to pay £6 million for Fer.

Elsewhere, QPR man Joey Barton has had his say on the World Cup Golden Ball, ridiculing the choice of Lionel Messi as the tournament's best player.
