Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, gaffer John Gregory revealed his delight at the move, commenting: "We're extremely pleased that we have the opportunity of having Michael Mancienne in our squad for the whole of next season.
"He had an outstanding period with us last season and I would like to pay a special debt of gratitude to Chelsea Football Club for allowing Michael to continue his footballing education with us.
"If he makes the progress this season as he did last season, we can expect even greater things from him.''
Mancienne impressed at right back and centre half for Rangers last season, with his performances deservedly earning him the runners-up award in the Supporters' Young Player of the Year category at the Club's end of season showcase.
Such was his impact, the England Under-19 international was also shortlisted for both the Player's Player and the Supporter's Player of the Year awards.
