Middlesbrough linked with a move for Championship goalkeeper

One of Neil Warnock's problems last season was in the goalkeeping department, due to the inconsistency of Marcus Bettinelli and Jordan Archer.

According to reports, Middlesbrough have been linked with making a move for QPR goalkeeper Joe Lumley who will become a free agent this summer transfer window.

The 26-year-old is QPR's current longest-serving player, and he has played in 77 Championship matches for the club since he made his debut.

Lumley has had to be played as a backup goalkeeper for the club, behind Seny Dieng in the pecking order. He has spells at Gillingham and Doncaster Rovers on emergency loans.

Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock is in serious search of a reliable goalkeeper, with the uncertainty of the future of Marcus Bettinelli, who is set to return to his parent club Fulham.

Signing Lumley could be the solution to his goalkeeping problem, and considering they will get him for free, it may be a decent move.
