QPR have completed the signing of defender Ian Evatt from Chesterfield for around 100,000.

Evatt, 23, has signed a three-year contract after a clause in his Chesterfield deal allowed him to move if a six-figure bid was tabled.

QPR chairman Bill Power and major shareholder Gianni Paladini flew to Majorca, where Evatt is on holiday.

"We wanted to get the deal done and it was always clear he wanted to come and play for us," said Power.

"We flew out to make sure we tied it all up. There were lots of other clubs interested but he wants to play for us, no-one else.

"He's a really good player and we're not surprised there are other clubs after him, but he's keen to join QPR."

Evatt joined Chesterfield from Derby County in July, 2003 and has since started 89 games for Roy McFarland's side, scoring 10 times.
