5 August 2015

Paul Konchesky is aiming to help Queens Park Rangers bounce back from relegation disappointment after joining the club on a season-long loan from Leicester City.

The 34-year-old, who has over 550 career appearances, is in line to make his Rangers debut against Charlton Athletic on Saturday in the Sky Bet Championship.

And the defender is hoping that game is the start of a positive season for the Hoops.

"I know what QPR as a club are all about having played here over the years - the fans demand 100 per cent and that's what I give every time I step on to the pitch," Konchesky said to the club's official website.

"I can't wait to get going and help this club bounce back from last season's relegation."

Konchesky is an experienced player, having won two England caps and appeared for the likes of West Ham United, Fulham and Liverpool in his career.

He also helped Leicester up to the Premier League during his time with the Foxes, winning the Sky Bet Championship title in 2013/14.

Just wanna say Thanks to all of the #lcfc fans @OfficialFOXES for all your support over the last 4years. I have got some great memories

"I'm really pleased we've managed to get Paul in ahead of Saturday," Rangers manager Chris Ramsey said.

"Left-back is an area we're light on in terms of numbers at the moment owing to a couple of injuries, so Paul will come in and compete for the shirt immediately.

"He's got years of experience playing in both the Premier League and the Championship and he'll come in and add that knowledge and know-how, as well as his undoubted defensive qualities, to the group."
