Confirmation: Lee Camp Signs for QPR

The Club are delighted to announce the signing of England Under-21 goalkeeper Lee Camp from Derby County for a fee of £300,000.
After two successful loan spells with the R's, Camp, 22, has finally made his switch to W12 a permanent one, after putting pen to paper on a three-year deal.
The transfer represents somewhat of a coup for gaffer John Gregory, who has always stated his intentions to reunite Camp with the current R's squad, with whom he made such a notable contribution during the latter stages of last season.
The Rangers manager said: "It feels like an absolute eternity since I started competing for the permanent transfer of Lee Camp.
"I have finally managed to get my number one priority of the summer in, and I couldn't be more delighted.
"For the first time as manager of QPR I have found myself in a position where I can pay a transfer fee.
"I have been given a small transfer kitty so I have to spend the money very wisely.
"Lee played an integral part in helping us 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 to our supporters.
"Somehow we have managed to put together the £300,000 it has cost us in bringing Lee to Loftus Road, which has been paid directly by QPR and not by any other outside sources.
"When we sold Lee Cook, Chairman Gianni Paladini promised me there would be a percentage of Cookie's fee that I could spend in the market this summer, and he has been true to his word."

Goalkeeper Lee Camp has completed a permanent move to Coca-Cola Championship side Queens Park Rangers for a £300,000 fee.
The 22-year-old has enjoyed two previous successful loan spells at Loftus Road and he has headed south once again to rejoin John Gregory's Hoops.
Derby-born Camp made his debut for the Rams at the age of 19, late in the 2002/03 season, and made a total of 97 appearances for the club he has supported since childhood.
His first loan to QPR came in the final two months of 2003/04, where he played 12 games in helping them win promotion to the Championship, and a further 11 appearances followed in a three-month spell earlier this year.
Camp was also loaned out to Burton Albion in 2002/03, where played five Conference games before he returned to Derby and made his debut, and he also made three appearances during a spell at Norwich City late in 2006. Derby Official
