QPR have signed goalkeeper Tom Heaton from Manchester United on a three-month loan deal.

The 23-year-old, who has been capped three times for England’s Under-21s, spent last season on loan with Cardiff and will challenge Radek Cerny for the gloves at Loftus Road.

“I’m delighted we’ve been able to bring in a keeper of Tom’s calibre to the club,” said Rangers boss Jim Magilton.

“We need competition for Radek and Tom will provide that. He’s a good keeper who knows what it takes to play in the Championship.”
