QPR transfer news: Mauricio Isla set to join on loan deal from Italian champions Juventus
The Chile international posted a picture of himself on Twitter wearing a QPR shirt ahead of his proposed move to Loftus Road
Mauricio Isla has announced on his official Twitter account that he has joined QPR on loan from Italian champions Juventus.
The deal for the 26-year-old Chile international is understood to be a loan agreement with a view to a permanent deal.
The Juventus utility man had been due to have a medical on Sunday which was subsequently delayed after his flight was cancelled. However, it is understood that a deal has been agreed.
Isla announced on his official Twitter account, "Starting a new stage on my career. Happy to be a new @QPRFC player."
That Tweet since appears to have been deleted - though it was accompanied by a picture of the former Udinese man in a QPR shirt.
QPR Chairman Tony Fernandes has since taken to social media to welcome Isla to the club.
@MauricioIsla you look good in hoops. Almost official. Welcome to QPR. From your new Chairman Tony.Tony Fernandes (@tonyfernandes) August 5, 2014
