QPR look to raid Stoke City for Geoff Cameron

Queens Park Rangers are looking to bolster their squad with the addition of Stoke City’s Geoff Cameron on loan, West London Sport reports.

What’s the word?

After a turbulent start to the Championship season, QPR boss Steve McClaren is frantically trying to bolster his squad for the gruelling campaign that lies ahead and is seeking a number of additions before the loan market shuts on Friday.

A new central defender and a midfielder are top of the former England boss’ wishlist and West London Sport state Stoke City’s Geoff Cameron is the prime target due to his versatility that makes him a candidate to play in either position.

Relegated with the Potters last season, 33-year-old Cameron has spent his entire career in English football with Stoke but has yet to play for Gary Rowett’s side this season and may be allowed to move on six years after he was signed from Houston Dynamo.

Worth a move?

Geoff Cameron would be the ideal signing for QPR this week for a number of reasons, with the biggest benefit of a move for the veteran being the fact that he would bolster the depth in both defensive and midfield areas.

That versatility will be key heading into the remainder of the season as QPR face a transfer embargo in January and the club’s options are also restricted due to Financial Fair Play regulations, so Cameron would kill two birds with one stone.

Moreover, Cameron’s experience with Stoke and the United States national side is exactly what QPR have been crying out for this season following a woeful start that has seen the West London side concede 13 goals already this term.
