Liverpool and Arsenal have lost the battle to sign Steven Caulker with the defender confirming his switch to Queens Park Rangers, TalkSPORTS reports.
The 22-year-old centre-back completed the move on a four-year deal with QPR chairman Tony Fernandes confirming the news.
“I would like to announce the signing of Stephen Caulker to Queen’s Park Rangers. Welcome.”
Caulker also revealed his excitement to be reunited with former manager Harry Redknapp as well as having the chance to play alongside Rio Ferdinand.
“I’m very excited to be here. It was important for me to be back playing in the Premier League and Harry Redknapp has given me the opportunity to be at this fantastic club,” Caulker told the club’s official website.
“Harry was a big factor for me having worked with him at Tottenham. He was very keen for me to join and it was a big plus knowing the manager wants you.
“Being able to play with Rio was also a big draw. He has been a role model of mine for many years, along with Ledley King. To have the opportunity to play alongside him was something I felt I couldn’t miss out on.
“Our first aim this season has to be to get to 40 points to make sure we stay up. That’s our first goal.”
