URUGUAYAN striker Javier Chevanton has signed a short-term contract at Loftus Road.
The experienced front-man – a free agent following his release from Italian side Lecce at the end of last season – has been training with the R’s in recent weeks and has now put pen to paper on a three month deal.
Chevanton, 33, has won 22 caps for his country, scoring seven goals.
R’s boss Harry Redknapp told www.qpr.co.uk: “With the injuries we’ve had to Bobby and AJ, we’re really short of options in that department.
“Javier has spent time with us and integrated into the group very well.
“He arrives with a good pedigree and gives us a much-needed extra option in attack.”
Chevanton, whose contract runs until December 24th, said: “I am very happy to be here, working with a good manager like Harry Redknapp, for a team which is currently top of the Championship with huge ambitions to return to the Premier League.
“I am really looking forward to the challenge of playing in England. I have scored goals all around Europe and I am confident I can continue that record with QPR.
“When I was younger, I loved watching English football. The atmosphere here is great and when the chance came to join QPR, it was all I wanted.
“I have a great will-to-win and I can’t wait to do my best for the club and fall in love with the fans.”
The deal is subject to the player receiving international clearance.
