 - QPR Player Report Back for Training, Monday, July 9 

Announced yesterday to universal QPR Fan Joy and acclaim!


Queens Park Rangers Football Club is delighted to confirm the permanent transfer of Samba Diakite.
The Malian midfielder has put pen to paper on a four year-deal at Loftus Road, after Rangers agreed an undisclosed fee with SASP Nancy-Lorraine for the 23 year-old.
Diakite was a revelation during a short loan spell in W12 last season, producing one virtuoso display after another, as well as netting the winner in the R's 2-1 victory against Arsenal in late March.
A delighted Mark Hughes told www.qpr.co.uk: "Samba was a real find for us in January, so we're delighted he's joined us permanently.
"He's a very accomplished footballer and he's made to measure for the Premier League.
"He's got good pace, strength and ability on the ball and he's going to be a great asset for us going forward."
Hughes added: "There's still so much more to come from him.
"He's only been exposed to the Premier League for a handful of games, so I'm sure he's raring to go and get back into the action again."
Diakite (pictured with Technical Director, Mike Rigg), who made a stunning impact in his nine starts in a QPR shirt last season, said: "It's a dream come true to sign this contract.
"I loved my time here on loan and I couldn't be happier to join QPR on a permanent deal.
"It's a fantastic Club to play for and the owners have great plans for the future - I am just delighted to be part of it.
"This is a really exciting move for me."  QPR Official Site

SOCCER 365 - Taarabt 'wants to stay' at QPR

Adel Taarabt is ready to commit his long-term future to Queens Park Rangers despite interest from elsewhere in England.

And the priority now is an extension to his contract despite interest from elsewhere.

The Morocco playmaker helped Rangers survive in the Premier League last season after a summer move to Paris Saint-Germain fell through.

He said: "I want to stay at QPR. I have received offers from other Premier League clubs, but my deal is signed until June 2013 and I want to increase the contract.

"My agent has a document from the club about their long-term project, and it's very interesting to me."

Rangers have been busy in the transfer market since the end of the season, signing Rob Green, Andy Johnson, Ryan Nelsen and Samba Diakite. " SOCCER 365
