Queens Park Rangers sign Adel Taarabt from Tottenham

Adel Taarabt has made seven appearances for Morocco

QPR have signed Moroccan international midfielder Adel Taarabt from Tottenham for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year old scored seven goals last season whilst on loan at Loftus Road and has now agreed a three-year deal.

QPR boss Neil Warnock told the club's website: "We're delighted to have him on board and he gives us that little bit of quality you need for promotion.

"He has got unique talent and his target is to play at the top level, and I'm hoping we can achieve that."

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp once called Taarabt's skill 'frightening' but he only made nine league appearances for Spurs following his move from Lens in 2007.

Taarabt said: "I had options to go elsewhere, but what Neil said to me was very positive.

"Over the past year, everyone at the club has been great to me - it feels like home. I've come here because next year I want to play in the Premier League."
