QPR transfer news: Completed summer deals, including Rio Ferdinand and Steven Caulker

A look at the players who have arrived at Loftus Road this summer and those who have departed

Queens Park Rangers gained promotion back to the top flight thanks to Bobby Zamora's last minute winner in the play-off final.

As with any newly promoted side, Rangers' first task will be to stay in the league and then build from there.

COMPLETED TRANSFERS

Rio Ferdinand - Free from Manchester United

The 35-year-old Ferdinand had been looking for a new club since his contract at Manchester United expired and has now been reunited with Redknapp, his former manager at West Ham. Ferdinand won six Premier League titles with United and the Champions League in 2008. He was also picked in the PFA's Team-of-the-Year in six seasons.

Steven Caulker - undisclosed from Cardiff City

After just a season (and relegation) with Cardiff City, the former Tottenham player signed for Harry Redknapp. Caulker signed a four-year deal after an undisclosed fee was agreed with Cardiff for a player who won his solitary England cap in 2012.

Jordon Mutch - £6 million from Cardiff City

The Derby Country youth graduate impressed last season with his poise on the ball in a struggling Cardiff side - and has been rewarded with a move back to the Premier League.

Mauricio Isla - Loan from Juventus

The 26-year-old Chilean defender joins for the season from Juventus. Having been capped 47 times and been a part of Chile's impressive World Cup campaign, Harry Redknapp hailed Isla as a "verstatile" player.
