NIKO Kranjcar has returned to QPR, penning a season-long loan deal.
The Dynamo Kyiv playmaker – who spent last season on loan at Loftus Road – has put pen to paper on a deal for the remainder of the Barclays Premier League season.
Kranjcar, 30, expressed his delight at securing a return to Loftus Road, linking up once again with manager Harry Redknapp.
He said: “It’s a great feeling to be back, it feels like home. I felt a special emotion with the club and the fans.
“The fans were phenomenal last season. I had a great relationship with them and hopefully it’s only going to get better.
“I really feel happy here, at a club where I really want to play, and I play with all my heart. I can’t wait for my season to start with QPR.
“I believe I still have something to prove, for myself and for all the fans. The Premier League is a lot more physical than it was in the past but I’m looking forward to it. I have no doubt this club is going to be in the Premier League for a long time.”
Redknapp, who has handed Kranjcar the same number 19 shirt he wore last season, added: “Niko is a class player. I’m a huge, huge fan of his and really pleased to have him back here.
“He showed QPR fans last season what he can do and I actually believe he will be even better this year for us in the Premier League.
“He will have better players around him now, and the better players he plays with, the better player he is himself.
“Niko’s a real talent, and I am really pleased with the business we have done throughout the summer window.
“Getting Niko and Sandro in tonight is the icing on the cake for us.”
The deal is subject to the player receiving international clearance.
