Ferdinand is expected to sign a one-year deal with QPR, where he will be reunited with Harry Redknapp. Redknapp gave Ferdinand his debut when they were both at West Ham, Ferdinand later leaving Upton Park for Leeds before switching to United.


The 35-year-old spent 12 years at Old Trafford, leaving this summer when his contract expired after 455 appearances, eight goals and six Premier League titles. Ferdinand also claimed an winner’s medals in the FA Cup and Champions League and two in the League Cup.


Ferdinand was West Ham’s player of the year in 1997-98 and played more than 150 times for the Hammers before making the move to Elland Road, spending two years in Yorkshire.


Clint Hill is the current QPR captain and is expected to retain the armband despite the presence of Ferdinand, who also captained England for part of his 81-cap international tenure.


Reflecting on the capture of Ferdinand, Redknapp is quoted as saying: “It’s a terrific deal. Rio will be a great player for us with his knowledge and his experience of the game.”
