QPR bolster their numbers

QPR have completed the signing of Lazio striker Djibril Cisse on transfer deadline day, who joins the Loftus Road club for an undisclosed fee.

The fiery attacker only moved to the Stadio Olimpico back in the summer, but struggled to command a place in Edoardo Reja’s first team.

Rangers manager Mark Hughes is delighted to have Cisse on board, and has revealed that he has been a long-term admirer of the forward.

“I’ve watched him for many years and always been impressed by what he brings to the table,” Sparky told the club’s official website.

“He’s a huge threat to opposition’s defences. He’s got great pace, power and movement and that’s something we will hopefully benefit from.

“His goal record is there for everyone to see. He’s scored goals wherever he’s played. His record speaks for itself.

“He was desperate to come here once we showed our interest in him and we can’t wait to get the best out of him,” the coach admitted.

Cisse also stated his admiration for Hughes, and is looking to recapture his best form at the London club.

“When I talked to the manager, he spoke highly of the club and where he wants to take it over the next few years. He wanted to sign me at Manchester City and now I am finally here with him at QPR.

“The English league is the best in the world. It is the league that suits me the most. I’m really happy here and I can’t wait to repay the club’s confidence in me, to get back to where I want to be as a player,” the French striker concluded.
