Former Republic of Ireland international goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has joined Leeds United from Queens Park Rangers for an undisclosed fee, believed to be £400,000.

The 34-year-old had found himself displaced as Rangers’ first choice after Mark Hughes signed England’s World Cup 2010 keeper Robert Green. This is the fourth time manager Neil Warnock has signed the Halifax-born goalkeeper, having previously brought him to Bury, Sheffield United, and QPR.

“I’ve loved every single minute of my time at QPR,” Kenny told QPR’s official website. “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. Hopefully I’ll be back at Loftus Road as a Premier League player with Leeds United in the very near future.”

Kenny made seven Republic of Ireland appearances between 2004 and 2006, but retired from international football in in 2007. However, he has indicated a willingness to return to the Irish setup in recent years. He becomes the second Irishman to move to Elland Road this summer, after the signing of Paul Green from Derby County.
