QPR duo sign for Blackpool

QPR'S Daniel Nardiello and Zesh Rehman joined in their first Seasiders training session today – with Kaspars Gorkss move to London finally complete.

The longest running transfer saga of the summer was finally resolved late last night with QPR and Pool brokering a deal.

While Latvian international Gorkss ends his 18 month stay at Bloomfield Road for a big payday at Rangers, striker Nardiello and defender Rehman move North to the Fylde.

Nardiello has signed a two year deal with an option for a further 12 months.


akistan international Rehman has agreed to six month loan, though Pool have an option to make the switch permanent.

On top of that the Seasiders will receive a cash payment of more than 250,000.

It means Karl Oyston – quoted as saying he'd rather sell Gorkss to any club rather than QPR - has backed down.

However, it's understood that Pool are more than happy with the players and fee they have received – and there's no doubt Simon Grayson is just pleased to have the whole saga sorted.

"The deal is almost done and dusted and I am glad that it has all got sorted," said a relieved Simon Grayson.

"As part of the deal we will be getting a couple of players in Zesh Rehman and Daniel Nardiello and money on top of that and it's nice it's been resolved.

"We've got two players who we think will benefit the football club and we wish Kaspars well because he was a good servant for the football club.

"But you have to move on in football and I'm glad to have the two players on board that we've signed."
