Israel international joins Rs on temporary switch until end of season
Queens Park Rangers have signed striker Tomer Hemed on a season-long loan from Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion.
The 31-year-old was part of the Seagulls squad that won promotion from the Sky Bet Championship in 2017.
Though promotion might not be on the cards for the Rs this term, the Israel international is looking forward to have a successful campaign in the division again.
“I’ve good experience at this level. I scored goals in the Championship for Brighton, so I know how to do it,” Hemed told the club website,
“I came here to score goals, but also to create chances for others and be a big factor in the attacking side of the game.
“I’ve done good things with Brighton and I can use my character to show that, even though it has been a bad period for QPR, we can do better every week.
“Of course I have to score goals, but if I can give a bit more confidence to the players after a difficult start, then I’m sure after one or two good games we can do good things together.”
Hemed could make his debut for the Loftus Road club on Saturday when they host Wigan Athletic in the league.
Fellow QPR forward Conor Washington, meanwhile, has been named in the Northern Ireland squad for their games against Bosnia & Herzegovina and Israel next month.
