Camp heads to Loftus Road

Camp heads to Loftus Road


Rams keeper Lee Camp has joined Queens Park Rangers in a £300,000 deal, and became the first departure in the transfer window for the Pride Park side.

Derby born Camp put pen to paper on a three-year contract at Loftus Road, and the 22-year-old spoke of how proud he feels to have played for his home-town club but now he is looking forward to a fresh start with QPR.

'Joining QPR is an opportunity to play first-team football,' said Camp.
'I just felt I would drop to number three in the pecking order at Derby and so the move is a fresh start for me and a new challenge.
'I am proud to have played for my home-town club and I wish everybody at Derby all the best for the season.'

Billy Davies speaking on the Rams official web site said he spoke to Camp a few weeks ago about staying and fighting for a place.
'Lee did not come back to me,' added the Rams boss, 'and so it was evident to me he wanted to go and become number one at QPR. I felt I had to go into the marketplace for another keeper.'

Camp is back at QPR where he enjoyed two successful loan periods and Rangers boss John Gregory is delighted to have landed the England Under-21 international.
'I have finally got my number one priority of the summer in,' said Gregory.
'Lee played an integral part in helping us to maintain our Championship status last season. He is an outstanding goalkeeper and his arrival is a massive boost, not only to the squad but also the supporters.'

Just thought I'd pop round and see how my "other" team is doing!! My dad is from Derby so I've always followed the Rams in one way or other, but am a Fulham Fan through and through. I think losing Camp is a real shame! I've always rated the lad but I guess Bywater is just tooo good for him to challenge. All the best guys and wish you all the best of luck in the premiership!!
