QPR snap up Argentine midfielder


QPR have completed the signing of Argentine midfielder Alejandro Damian Faurlin on a three-year deal for £3.5m.

The 22-year-old joins from Instituto in Argentina's second tier and is Rangers manager Jim Magilton's first signing, subject to international clearance.

"I had opportunities to play in Spain, Italy and Greece, but QPR was my choice and I'm delighted," said Faurlin.

"I was really impressed with the set-up and the ambition of the club and can't wait to make my QPR debut."

He added: "I know a lot about the English game and I really admire the ability of the teams at this level.


"I am really looking forward to playing for the club and showing the manager, my fellow players and the QPR supporters what I can do.

Magilton said: "We've had a good look at him and I believe he will be a valuable addition to the squad.

"He's a likeable young lad who plays with a smile on his face, so we'll have no problems."

Rangers are also giving a trial to forward David Connolly, 32, who is a free agent after being released by Sunderland.
