Queens Park Rangers have snapped up Chelsea goalkeeper Rhys Taylor on an emergency loan deal until January.

Taylor has yet to make a first-team appearance and has joined Chelsea's local rivals to provide cover for Radek Cerny.

The 19-year-old is likely to be in the squad for QPR's game against Doncaster Rovers on Saturday and manager Jim Magilton is expecting Taylor to benefit from his loan spell.

"Rhys comes highly recommended and we're delighted to have him on board," Magilton told the club's official website.

"We've spoken to all the staff at Chelsea and they rate the boy very highly.

"It gives us the opportunity to work with a very good young goalkeeper and it gives Rhys the chance to work with a top-class goalkeeper and professional in Radek.

"I've no doubt he'll push Radek all the way and that competition is running throughout the squad, so I couldn't be happier."
