Leeds United sign Paddy Kenny from Queens Park Rangers

Former Ireland international rejoins manager Neil Warnock by agreeing a deal with the Elland Road side but stresses enjoyment of Loftus Road experience
Leeds United have completed the signing of Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Paddy Kenny for an undisclosed fee.

The 34-year-old has signed a three-year contract with the Championship club but the former Republic of Ireland international was keen to stress that he left Loftus Road with fond memories.

"I’ve loved every single minute of my time at QPR," Kenny told the Irish Times.

In linking up with Leeds United, it marks the fourth time that Kenny has been signed by manager Neil Warnock, with the coach bringing him to Bury, Sheffield United and Queens Park Rangers.

The former Sheffield United shot-stopper was signed for Queens Park Rangers by Warnock in 2010 and described his two years as being 'incredible'.

He continued: "It’s been an incredible two years. Winning promotion to the Premier League here is an experience I will never forget as was the rollercoaster ride of avoiding relegation last season."

And Kenny is hopeful that Leeds can achieve promotion to the Premier League during the next few seasons.

“Hopefully I’ll be back at Loftus Road as a Premier League player with Leeds United in the very near future,” concluded the goalkeeper.
