Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has completed his move to Queens Park Rangers, signing a one-year deal with the newly promoted side, Guardian has reported.

The ex-England international’s move to the West London club has long been on the cards since leaving Old Trafford at the end of last season when Man Utd decided against offering him a new contract. That ended 12 years with the club, during which he won six Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the Champions League among other things.


Ferdinand is QPR’s first signing of the summer, and since they returned to the Premier League, and the 35-year-old was thrilled to complete the deal. He said: “I spoke to Harry and (chairman) Mr (Tony) Fernandes at length. I think they both looked me in the eye and knew that I still have something to offer - that I had a genuine desire to come here and play football.


“I had a lot of offers from all over the world – some in places with a better climate than here. But the draw for me was to play in the Premier League and back here where it all started. It’s not about money – I had loads of more lucrative offers available to me. I still feel I’ve got something to offer and I’m excited about helping this club cement its place in the Premier League.”
