QPR swoop for Wayne Routledge and Pascal Chimbonda
Routledge and Chimbonda have both signed until the end of the season
Queens Park Rangers have signed winger Wayne Routledge from Newcastle on loan and landed former Blackburn defender Pascal Chimbonda on a free transfer.
Both contracts are until the end of the season, with Routledge returning to his former club, while France cap Chimbonda was released by Rovers this week.
"Wayne needs an arm around him. He is a super lad and a super player," QPR boss Neil Warnock told the club website.
"To get someone of Pascal's experience and quality is a massive boost."
In his 12 months on Tyneside, 25-year-old Routledge made a total of 26 appearances, scoring three goals.
The former England Under-21 international began his career at Crystal Palace and also played for Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa before signing for Rangers after a loan spell at Cardiff City in January 2009.
