Queens Park Rangers boss Ian Holloway has clinched the signing of Everton winger Kevin McLeod for a nominal fee.
The 22-year-old has signed on a month's loan, which will make him eligible for Monday's game against Brighton.
His permanent signing has also been agreed, however, and will be completed after the match at the Withdean Stadium.
The fee could rise to as much as £250,000 over several seasons, depending on appearances.
McLeod ended last season on loan at Loftus Road and returns to the club despite recently signing a new contract at Everton.
He has been allocated Rangers' number 22 shirt.
