Former England captain claims QPR move has nothing to do with money

QPR new boy Rio Ferdinand believes he still has a lot to offer in the Premier League after his free transfer to Loftus Road.

Ferdinand was released by Manchester United at the end of last season and has had numerous offers over the summer.

The former England man was a pundit at the World Cup and has admitted that he had numerous big money offers while in Brazil.

Ferdinand wants to play a huge role in the R’s side this season and believes he still has a lot to offer at the highest level despite being 35-years-old.

“I spoke to Harry and Mr Fernandes at length. They both looked me in the eye and knew that I still have something to offer,” Ferdinand told the club’s official website.

“It’s not about money – I had loads of more lucrative offers available to me, offers from all over the world, some in places with a better climate than here.

“But the draw for me was to play in the Premier League and back here where it all started.

“I still feel I’ve got something to offer and I’m excited about helping this club cement its place in the Premier League.”
