QPR snap up Cureton
Queens Park Rangers have pipped Peterborough in the race to sign Jamie Cureton.

A deal to sign the ex-Reading striker from Korean club Busan Icons collapsed earlier this week.

But a fee has now been agreed and 28-year-old Cureton, who played under QPR boss Ian Holloway at Bristol Rovers, will complete the move after a medical.

The transfer is being paid for by money raised by Our QPR, a fund-raising initiative set up by fans last month.

Peterborough thought there were on the verge of signing the player after they had an undisclosed bid accepted. But Cureton has opted for London after failing to settle in the Far East.

Holloway is also looking to sign Burnley defender Arthur Gnohere on loan for the rest of the season.

Gnohere had a loan spell at Rangers earlier in the campaign.
