Defender Deal Done

Defender Kaspars Gorkss has today signed for Queens Park Rangers despite the recent protestations of the Blackpool board.

Gorkss, 26 has aroused the suspicions of Blackpool when they accused the R`s of making an illegal approach for the Latvian international. Both manager Simon Grayson and maligned chairman Karl Oyston had sore misgivings over the way the R`s approached the deal.

However with Zesh Rehman joining Blackpool on loan it paved the way for the deal for the Latvian international to be done

Gorkss, joins from Blackpool for an undisclosed fee, and put pen to paper on a three year contract.

After a brief spell in Sweden, Gorkss returned to Latvia and was triumphant winning the league title in 2006 with Ventspils. He later went on to play against Newcastle United in the UEFA Cup the following season.

The defender born in the capital, Riga, has made 10 appearances for his international side, scoring 2 goals. His arrival on the scene at Blackpool has drawn him several plaudits making 40 league appearances this season scoring 5 goals, one of which was a consolation at Loftus Road in a 3-2 win for the R`s.

Billed recently as a goalscoring centre half, he bagged a goal for his country earlier this season in a friendly against Lithuania.

Squad is certainly starting to shape up ahead of the season.

Agreed, we needed this one, another defender and definately a couple of strikers required. Although I like the look of Di Carmine! How are things up at Lincoln?

That one dragged out......were you waiting to see if Oyston was going to try some of his games?

Think we got the better deal here - two fringe players off our books in exchange for a little bit of cash & a potentially great (?!) defender!!
sandydl
that is very optimistic of you Sandy! I think he'll be ok at this level, but will he be able to cut it, if and when we go up? Probably not, i reckon, otherwise he'd be up there already!
