Geoff Cameron has joined QPR on a season-long loan from Stoke City.
The versatile 33-year-old, who can play in defence or midfield, will go straight into Steve McClaren’s squad for this weekend’s trip to Birmingham City.
Cameron, who has spent the past six seasons playing in the Premier League with the Potters, told www.qpr.co.uk: “I’m extremely excited and happy to be here. It’s a fresh start and new beginning for me.
“I decided over the summer that I wanted a change and something new. The boss here has been interested in me before and I’m excited to play for him.
“He wanted me here which is always a big part when they believe in your ability. I want to help the team and get us up the table.
“I’m the guy that does the dirty work. I’m not the flashiest of players, I try to read the game and get the ball to the guys that can score the goals!”
Cameron says he is relishing the opportunity to pass on his knowledge of the game to the younger members of the QPR squad, adding: “I look at it as a challenge to use my experience. It’s an opportunity to take my game to a leader role.”
R’s boss McClaren said: “We were keen to bolster our squad so I am delighted to bring in a player who can play in any one of three positions – right back, centre back or central midfield.
“But it’s not just about his versatility – Geoff has fantastic experience and has spent the last few years playing regularly in the Premier League.
“He has great pedigree, is an international and will be a valuable asset to the development of our team.
“I would also like to thank the Board who have once again shown great support to make this happen.”
Cameron will wear squad number 5 shirt during his spell in W12 and goes straight into the travelling squad for this Saturday's trip to Birmingham City.
