QPR have secured the signing of former Blackburn Rovers defender Junior Hoilett. The defender arrives on a free transfer after his contract with the Championship came to an end last season. He will be one of the new signings at the club alongside the Manchester United defender Fabio Da Silva, who has arrived on a loan deal at the club.
Even though Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been insistent that Fabio Da Silva has moved only on loan deal and that it would not be made permanent, there are suggestions that Mark Hughes will look to make the move permanent if the Brazilian is successful at Loftus Road.
QPR have been extremely active in the summer transfer window after struggling against relegation last season. Even though the arrival of Mark Hughes in the January transfer window did not alter things a lot, the former Fulham manager promised significant changes in the summer transfer window if the club stayed up in the Premier league. They survived by the skin of their teeth after the 3-2 defeat at the hands of Manchester City on the final day of last season. As a result, QPR have been making significant purchases in the summer backed by the owner Tony Fernandes.
“I don’t know the process now. They might make us an offer for his registration but if not it might go to a tribunal. We feel we have played a large part in his development. We wish him all the best but it would have been nice if we had a call. I don’t know what the figure was for Daniel Sturridge, but I know it was a chunky figure. We have had Junior a long time, we have put a lot of time and effort in him and I’m sure that will be reflected in the price,” said the Blackburn manager Kean.
