QPR have completed the signing of Sheffield Wednesday striker Leon Clarke on a free transfer.

The 25-year-old former Wolves centre forward has agreed a two-year deal at Loftus Road following his release from the Yorkshire club.

Boss Neil Warnock told the QPR website: "Some people might be surprised by this signing but he's a player I've fancied for a very long while."

Clarke joined Wednesday in January 2007 and scored 18 goals in 83 league games.

Warnock added: "I think he's got a lot of ability, but I think he's underachieved. I rate him very highly though."

Clarke, who played one game on loan at QPR earlier in his career, said: "Neil has outlined his plans for the campaign and it promises to be an exciting chapter in the club's history."
