QPR seal loan deal for Taiwo

AC Milan left-back Taye Taiwo has completed his loan move to QPR for the rest of the season.

Taiwo, 26, joined the Rossoneri from Marseille in the summer but has struggled for a regular first-team berth.

The Nigerian, who can also operate in midfield, had been linked with a January move to injury-plagued Arsenal but has now joined QPR after securing a work permit, becoming Mark Hughes' first signing.

Speaking to the club's website, Hughes said: "I have known of him for a long time and admired him from afar. To get him now is a fantastic coup and a real statement of intent that we can attract the quality of player that he is. I am looking forward to working with him.

"He has got great ability, a good reputation in the game and a great personality. He plays with a smile on his face and I think QPR fans are going to enjoy seeing him play for us."

Taiwo has made eight appearances in all competitions to date this term, including four in the Champions League and has 48 international caps to his name for his native Nigeria.

He said: "It's a new and exciting challenge for me and one I am very much looking forward to. I'm very grateful to Mark Hughes for bringing me here. It is always nice for a player when you know the Manager wants you and I will repay his faith in me.

"I can't wait to play for the Club. I know only hard work, good performance, dedication, and passion will connect me with the fans but I'm prepared. I'm looking forward to what lies ahead and I'm prepared to give my all to the QPR cause."
