Fulham defender Hughes signs deal until end of the season

QPR have signed defender Aaron Hughes on a short-term contract until the end of the season.

The experienced 34 year-old, who can play in a number of positions, has put pen to paper on a deal until the end of the campaign following his departure from Fulham.

Hughes’ arrival on a free transfer follows the news that Danny Simpson is set for a spell on the sidelines owing to a back injury and R’s boss Harry Redknapp is delighted to add the versatile Northern Ireland international to his squad.

Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, he said: “Aaron’s a very experienced player and with the injuries we’ve suffered lately, he’s a fantastic addition.

“He’s got pace, excellent positional sense and is a good out-and-out defender.

“He’s a great professional and he’ll be a big asset to us.”

Hughes, who has made 17 appearances in all competitions for the Cottagers this term, added: “I don't see this as a drop down in class, I see it as a fresh, new challenge.

“It's a chance for me to come and get some games and help this club build on what's been a good season so far.

“It's a different challenge but one I'm really looking forward to."

Hughes, who will wear the number 18 shirt, added: “The opportunity to come here was too good to turn down.

“Harry tried to sign me as a youngster when he was at West Ham, so it's nice that I've now got the opportunity to play for him.

“QPR are a club looking to get back into the Premier League and if I can come in and help in some small way, I'll do my best to do that.”
