Sources: QPR to seal another new signing today after triggering release clause
By Pete O’Rourke
Queens Park Rangers are poised to sign Livingston goalkeeper Liam Kelly in the next 24 hours, Football Insider understands.
Kelly is set to make the move to Loftus Road for a minimal fee of £50,000 after the English Championship club activated a release clause in his contract at the Scottish top flight outfit.
A QPR source has told Football Insider that Kelly is in London putting the final touches to his move as he prepares to sign a three-year contract.
The Glasgow Rangers academy product will be one of two new signings to be completed by the west London club today, along with Lee Wallace, who is joining from Ibrox on a free transfer.
Kelly, 23, impressed last season for Livingston and a number of English clubs showed an interest in the shot-stopper, but QPR have moved quickly to agree a deal for Kelly.

New QPR boss Mark Warburton is a big admirer of Kelly having worked with him during his time in charge of Rangers and he sees the Scotland international as a valuable addition to his plans at Loftus Road.
Kelly, who has been capped by Scotland at Under-21s level, is set to battle it out with Joe Lumley for the No.1 spot next season.
