Huddersfield Town accept QPR bid for Alex Smithies

QPR 1

The 25-year-old is the subject of interest in west London.

HITC Sport understands Queens Park Rangers have had a bid accepted by Huddersfield Town for goalkeeper Alex Smithies.

Queens Park Rangers are closing in on the signing of Huddersfield goalkeeper Alex Smithies after having a bid accepted for his services, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Smithies was left out of Huddersfield's squad against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday afternoon due to the ongoing transfer situation.

QPR boss Chris Ramsey is in the market for a new goalkeeper after seeing Alex McCarthy leave for Crystal Palace, while doubts remain over Rob Green's future at Loftus Road.

Rangers had been chasing Southend United's Dan Bentley but saw their bid rejected for the highly rated shot stopper - with Southend holding out for over £1 million for Bentley.

However, QPR have now switched their attentions to Smithies as they look to bolster their goalkeeping options before the transfer window closes. The 25-year-old is now set to travel to London for talks and a medical ahead of his potential move to Loftus Road.

Smithes has made over 250 appearances for Huddersfield since making his debut for his hometown club in 2007.
