QPR have completed the signing of Real Madrid midfielder Esteban Granero for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old midfielder has agreed a four-year contract at Loftus Road after making 60 appearances for Los Blancos.

In a statement released by the  Premier League club tonight, QPR's boss Mark Hughes said: "He is a great player, first and foremost. You don't play at a club like Real Madrid if you're not."

Hughes added: "He has been there from the age of nine, so this has been a huge decision for him. He is very well regarded there and for him to leave a club of that stature to come to us shows the belief he has in what we are trying to do.

I am delighted to be part of this exciting chapter in the club's history.

"He has got great energy and is technically very gifted, as you would expect from a Real Madrid player," he went on. "He is very comfortable on the ball and is an all-round excellent midfielder, which we will benefit from."

Granero told qpr.co.uk: "I'm very happy to be here. I love the passion of the English fans and from what I know QPR supporters are amongst the very best. I think QPR will continue to grow as a club and I want to be part of a very bright future here.

"I am delighted to be part of this exciting chapter in the club's history. Players that have joined before me are as excited as I am about what QPR can become, one of the great teams in England."
