- Jim Magilton wore a broad smile this evening (Tuesday) after clinching the signing of Argentinean ace Alejandro Faurlin.
- The 22 year-old midfielder has penned a three year deal - subject to international clearance - and becomes Magilton's first signing at Loftus Road.
- "We've been watching the lad for some time. John (Gorman) recognised him a long time ago," Magilton revealed to www.qpr.co.uk.
- "We've seen him in action and on DVD's and assessed what he's about, but having him here for the last few days has given us a chance to see what he's really like and we've been impressed.
- "He plays central midfield. He's got a lovely left foot, a great work ethic and in a 46 game season, he'll be a valuable player for us."
- Magilton added: "We knew about his quality and ability, but his attitude over the last few days has been great too.
- "I've signed an Argentinean before and the attitude and the hunger is apparent with Alejandro, as it was with (Luciano) Civelli.
- "It's all happened pretty quickly, but we're delighted to have him here. He'll bring extra quality to the squad, there's no doubt about that." QPR
