After a Week of Sturm und Drang: Bolton's Helguson Joins QPR!

- So Heidar Helguson is joining QPR on loan! Of course, many readers of messageboards would know about this revived deal. But then again, pretty much only messageboard readers would even be aware of all the Sturm und Drang of the past week; and that Heguson wasn't already at QPR. According to the two clubs' official sites, the deal was done and dusted - and announced - almost a week ago.

Marc Iles/This is Lancashire - Helguson loan move nearing a conclusion
- The mysterious case of Heidar Helguson’s loan move away from the Reebok would appear to finally be nearing a conclusion.
The Iceland international found himself in limbo over the weekend after rejecting a transfer to Loftus Road at the 11th hour on Friday afternoon.
Both clubs had earlier announced that the deal had been completed – but when he failed to appear for the Hoops’ defeat to Watford on Saturday, Charlton Athletic launched a rival bid of their own.

The mega-rich Championship club then submitted a revised offer – now being considered by the player – which would see Helguson move to London until mid-January.
Having found his first-team opportunities restricted since his £1.5million move from Fulham last summer, the striker is looking for a permanent move away from the Reebok.
His only Premier League appearance this season came as a substitute against his old club and his single start was in the Carling Cup defeat to Northampton Town.
Helguson was linked with loan moves to Norwich, Cardiff and Bristol City before the last transfer window closed. This is Lancashire
