QPR signs Jose Bosingwa

Queens Park Rangers have signed Jose Bosingwa on a three-year deal, the Premier League club announced Friday.

The 29 year-old Bosingwa, who arrives on a free transfer after his release from Chelsea, becomes QPR manager Mark Hughes' eighth summer signing.

Bosingwa's signing comes too late for him to take part in Saturday's season opener against Swansea at Loftus Road, but Hughes hailed the arrival of the two-time Champions League winner.

"I am delighted to bring a player of his undoubted quality to the club," Hughes told the club's website. "He has got plenty of pace, great technical ability and all the attributes you need to be a top player.

"Jose has a lot of versatility, which is something I like my players to have. He can operate right across the back and can also play the holding role in midfield."

Bosingwa's first taste of Champions League success arrived with Porto in 2004, before enjoying further glory with Chelsea last season after its penalty shootout success over Bayern Munich.

"He's another Champions League winner, the third in the squad now with Park Ji-Sung and Djibril Cisse, and will add invaluable experience to the group," Hughes said.

His overall medal haul includes 15 trophies, including four Portuguese league titles, one Premier League title and three FA Cup successes.

"His experience is really important to us. He understands the Premier League and he understands what it takes to win games. He has got a winning mentality and that is what I want to have around the place."

"I'm really pleased to be here," Bosingwa told the club website. "I had the pick of many clubs, but the project here excites me greatly. I spoke yesterday with the manager and owner and they showed me what they want for the future of the club.

"I played for Chelsea for four years and I love Premier League football and the supporters. It is fantastic for me to stay in England. I'm happy and all of my family are happy, and that is most important."

Chairman Tony Fernandes believes the arrival of Bosingwa is indicative of the progress the west London club has made.

"I think it speaks volumes of how far we've come as a club that we're able to attract a double Champions League winner to Loftus Road," he said.

"There was big competition from a number of Europe's top clubs -- including a few from the Premier League -- for his signature, so I couldn't be more delighted that we've managed to get him here."
