Fans` Anguish: QPR Get Barker
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.
