Warburton Moves on From Judge and Signs Pugh
Saturday, 27th Jul 2019 23:13
QPR boss Mark Warburton's pursuit of Blues midfielder Alan Judge looks to be at an end.
Warburton added free agent former AFC Bournemouth man Marc Pugh to his squad earlier today and has said that that signing was a result of the Blues rebuffing bids - of £250,000 and £450,000 - for Judge.
"Yeah, it probably is,” Warburton told West London Sport, before adding that he believes the Dubliner will be staying at Portman Road and that the proposed deal is no longer on the table.
Judge had told manager Paul Lambert that he would be interested in the move back to the Championship but, as TWTD reported on Friday, Town owner Marcus Evans is determined to keep hold of the Republic of Ireland international, who only signed a new two-year contract in April.
The 30-year-old, who previously played for Warburton at Brentford, made his first appearance of pre-season as a half-time sub in today’s 0-0 friendly draw at Cambridge United having broken his wrist while on international duty with Ireland last month.
