QPR seal Bothroyd deal
QPR have completed the signing of England striker Jay Bothroyd on a three-year deal.
Bothroyd, 29, has been a free agent since leaving Championship outfit Cardiff at the end of the season but has now become Neil Warnock's first summer signing.
Bothroyd's move marks a return to Rangers for the striker, who was with the with the club's centre of excellence from the age of nine before moving to Arsenal.
"I spoke to the manager and he told me how much he wanted me," Bothroyd told the club's official website. "He convinced me that this was the right place to be. He told me the direction that he wants to go in and the way he wants to play.
"I think this club is heading in the right direction and has got a lot of ambition."
Warnock says he is delighted to finally get his man.
"In bringing Jay in, we have managed to secure an excellent player which augers well for the forthcoming campaign," he said. "We have been chasing him for a number of weeks and it has been frustrating at times.
"We have had to have a lot of patience with this but, as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait. We are now working hard to add another new face to the squad and we hope to have that done very soon."
