QPR have completed the free transfer signing of MyPa utility-man Sampsa Timoska.
The 27 year-old Finland international has put pen to paper on an 18 month contract with the Club.
Rated highly in his homeland having accrued a wealth of experience in the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Cup and Finnish Veikkausliiga, Timoska is set to go straight into the R's squad for the FA Cup third round tie against Luton Town on Saturday afternoon, subject to receiving international clearance.
Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, gaffer John Gregory revealed his delight at securing the services of the versatile international: "He's a neat and tidy footballer, who is very versatile and can play across the back four, or in midfield.
"He will enhance our squad and gives us a bit of improvement in those areas. He's a good athlete as well.''
A centre half by trade, Timoska - who has built a healthy reputation with his performances in the Finnish Veikkausliiga over the past few years - is also capable of playing at full-back and midfield.
Timoska will wear the number 27 shirt vacated by Adam Czerkas.

Ben Kosky/Kilburn Times - 27 December 2006 - Timoska to make Rangers bow
FINNISH centre-back Sampsa Timoska is poised to make his QPR debut in their FA Cup tie against Luton after signing an 18-month contract at Loftus Road.
Timoska, who has joined Rangers from MyPa 47, will be John Gregory's first signing of the January transfer window, but is unable to feature against Colchester on Monday due to Football League regulations.
His arrival is the first of many changes planned by the QPR boss over the coming weeks, with several squad players likely to follow Adam Czerkas through the exit door....
"Sami will be a valuable member of the squad and for him to play in London is a dream move. He's versatile and he will go straight into the side."
Timoska, 27 - who can play at centre-back or full-back - spent a trial period with Colchester earlier this season, but has been training at QPR for some time now.
He is a former under-21 international for Finland and featured for MyPa in this season's Champions League qualifiers, where they were knocked out by FC Copenhagen.
