At Queens Park Rangers since being signed on a free from MSV Duisburg in 2016, Seny Dieng is enjoying his first season as a starter for the Championship side.

Coming in for the third game of the season against Middlesbrough, the 24-year-old has made the position his own, featuring nine times, conceding 12 and picking up three clean sheets.

Mark Warburton’s decision to trust the Zurich born shot stopper, who wants to represent Senegal, has paid off, and Dieng is delighted with his newfound role.

Speaking to WiwSport, he said: “The season is still very young. I’m very happy to have been given the opportunity to play here and I feel very comfortable. I think we have a very good team and I hope we can get many wins, clean sheets and play well.

“My goal this season is to be very consistent and to get better with every game. And to push for the playoffs”.

Recently seeing his contract at QPR extended for another four years, it’s clear the Championship club are ready to rely on Dieng for the foreseeable future, where he hopes he can shine enough to catch the attention of the Senegal manager.

First called up in 2014, he hasn’t been given the chance to return, and with the likes of Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy ahead of him, the competition is fierce for the Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper.

Still, he said: “I really want to return. I’m working very hard for that and I hope I’ll be back soon”.
