The Hughes Revolution Begins.........

Today the first two signings of the summer were unveiled as Mark Hughes captured two of his former players.

Firstly Ryan Nelson has agreed a one year deal with the R's after seeing his short term contract expire at Spurs. Nelson was signed by Hughes during his reign at Blackburn in 2005 and the New Zealander has jumped at the chance to work with his former boss.

Nelson told the Official QPR Website

"I am really pleased to be joining QPR.

I have obviously got a lot of history with the Manager and that was a massive draw for me.
I like his winning attitude. He and all his staff just have an absolute desire to win, and that's what the Premier League is all about.
If you haven't got that, you won't be successful.
The owners have got fantastic ambition and it's exciting to become a part of that. There's a real buzz about the place and it is a privilege to be here."

The 34 year old signs on a free transfer.


The second signing is Andrew Johnson from Fulham, again on a free transfer.

Johnson signs on a two year deal and he is delighted to be working with Hughes, whilst also linking up with his former Fulham team mate Bobby Zamora.

Johnson told the Official QPR Website
"I've worked closely with Mark before and there are also players here that I've played with previously, including Bobby Zamora and Shaun Derry," he said.
"Those were factors in me joining, but this is a big, big Club and I've spoken to the Chairman and Mark, who both have great ambition for QPR, and it's something that I wanted to be a part of."


We welcome you both to Loftus Road and hope you enjoy plenty of success with us here at QPR.

U R'SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
