Queens Park Rangers have swooped to sign Chelsea teenager Rhys Taylor on an emergency loan deal.

The keeper replaces the outgoing Tom Heaton, who returned to Manchester United during the week after his loan period with the club expired.

The 19-year-old Welshman has penned a one-month emergency loan deal with Rangers and will provide much-needed cover for Radek Cerny.

The Neath-born stopper has featured regularly for Chelsea reserves as well as being capped for Wales Under 21s.

He said: "Rhys comes highly recommended and we're delighted to have him on board.

"We've spoken to all the staff at Chelsea and they rate the boy very highly.

"It gives us the opportunity to work with a very good young goalkeeper and it gives Rhys the chance to work with a top-class goalkeeper and professional in Radek (Cerny).

"I've no doubt he'll push Radek all the way and that competition is running throughout the squad, so I couldn't be happier."

The 'keeper will wear Heaton's vacated number 22 shirt, and it is anticipated he will return to Chelsea once Rangers can confirm the purchase of the Manchester United man.

Here at Vital QPR we would like to wish Rhys the warmest of welcomes

Judging by what I saw of him at Crewe - you can keep him!
