Vital Cardiff have confirmed the transfer of Colchester United`s top summer transfer target Chris Barker to QPR.

The 28-year old said: “I had several options but the move to QPR excited me and I hope to help them challenge for promotion next season.”

As part of the Welsh club`s squad cull, Barker was released for a nominal fee. His decision not to join Colchester comes in the wake of comments from several quarters about a lack of ambition and competitiveness in the transfer market, including by former star Chris Iwelumo.

Barker joins the London outfit having made 38 appearances for Colchester last season.

  • Gregory says we lost out to “four of five” other sides to get him. Good signing for QPR.

  • He was indeed a high earner at Cardiff we are certainly not going to braek the bank for him here.

  • Barker is a decent LB but nothing special, there are plenty others out there as good for half the wages!

  • Perhaps he was elevated too a high status; I agree with boom boom. It’s not that he was fab – it’s more about the fact that he really was supposed to sign. But it’s good that WiG spends money as if it were his own.
