Warburton drops update on Dieng’s QPR future

Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Warburton has dropped an update on the future of Seny Dieng.

What’s been said?

In recent comments cited by West London Sport, the QPR boss addressed reports suggesting that Sheffield United would be able to sign the Rs goalkeeper for a fee of around £6m this summer, assuring fans that they should not be worried about his side selling one of their prized assets on the cheap, with the 58-year-old labelling the quoted fee for the 26-year-old as ludicrous.

Warburton said: “No one here is going cheap. I read about a price tag on Seny. Ludicrous. The fans need not worry. The owners will put the right price on the players.

“Every player in the world has got a value. If anyone leaves QPR it will be on the owners’ terms. If they leave it doesn’t matter, because they’ll leave at a price that represents great value for QPR.”

Is Dieng indispensable for QPR?





Fans will be buzzing

Considering just how impressive Dieng was for QPR last season, the news that Warburton has no intention of cashing in on the goalkeeper, unless it is for a fee the club simply cannot refuse, is sure to have left the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium faithful buzzing.

Indeed, over his 42 Championship appearances last term, the £900k-rated man kept 11 clean sheets and made a total of 121 saves, as well as making an average of 2.9 stops and 0.2 successful run outs per game.

These metrics saw the man Warburton dubbed an “outstanding” player earn a seasonal SofaScore match rating of 6.96, ranking him as the club’s seventh-best performer in the second tier of English football.

The £4k-per-week shot-stopper also appears to have carried on this impressive form in the club’s 2021/22 Championship campaign, keeping one clean sheet and making 2.5 saves per match over his two league appearances so far this season – seeing him average a SofaScore match rating of 6.95.

As such, it would very much seem as if retaining the services of the Senegal international this summer would provide Warburton’s promotion hopes with a rather significant boost, while his recent comments on the 26-year-old’s future are sure to be music to the ears of fans.
