Marcus Bean gives resounding verdict on Twitter to Wycombe's Matt Ingram joining QPR

QPR Crest

Marcus Bean has hailed QPR's signing of goalkeeper Matt Ingram.

Queens Park Rangers have snapped up goalkeeper Matt Ingram - and his ex-Wycombe team-mate Marcus Bean has praised his former club for the signing.

The R's appear to have a transfer strategy of targeting up-and-coming Football League stars under new boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, having snapped up striker Conor Washington from Peterborough last week.

He was then joined by Wycombe goalkeeper Ingram, who has been snapped up by Hasselbaink to challenge with Alex Smithies for the No. 1 jersey, with Robert Green's future unclear.

22-year-old Ingram has earned rave reviews for his performances under former QPR hero Gareth Ainsworth this season, and he has now made the move to Loftus Road.

Born and bred in Wycombe, the goalkeeper game up through the ranks at Adams Park, and will now be looking to develop in the Championship after his big transfer.

After the deal was completed, a player well placed to comment on the deal gave his view. Wycombe midfielder Marcus Bean was a team-mate of Ingram with the Chairboys, and spent 11 years as a QPR player having come up through the ranks at Loftus Road.

Bean took to Twitter to give his resounding view on the deal, stating that he is not only 'buzzing' for Ingram, but believes QPR have made a great signing with the young shot stopper.

 

Do you think Ingram can displace Smithies as QPR's first choice goalkeeper?
