- Queens Park Rangers Football Club is delighted to announce it has reached agreement with Tottenham Hotspur Football Club for the season long loan signing of Adel Taarabt.
- Rangers have beaten off eleventh hour attempts from a number of other Championship Clubs to secure the attacking midfielder's services for the 2009/10 campaign.

- Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, R's gaffer Jim Magilton says he is relishing the Moroccan international's pending return.
- "I've seen Adel plenty of times and I know he's a player of undoubted ability," he said.
- "He's a match winner on his day and will bring added competition to the squad.
- "The fact we have been able to agree a deal to bring in someone of Adel's quality shows the sort of direction this Club is heading in.
- "If you can encourage a squad player from the Premier League to take the drop down to the Championship, then it shows what your intentions are."
- Magilton added: "He will benefit from playing regularly and, given a run in the side, I am sure he will give us another dimension.
- "Make no mistake, we are all very ambitious here - none more so than the players - and Adel's arrival will bring vital competition for places which is needed for any squad that has ambitions to challenge." QPR
