Shaun Wright-Phillips signs for QPR

QPR have completed the signing of Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips.

The 29-year-old becomes the fourth major signing of the Tony Fernandes era, following Joey Barton, Luke Young and Armand Traore to west London.

The transfer brings an end to Wright-Phillips' second spell at City and he admits Rangers' ambition helped sway him.

"I am very delighted at the moment, I am just really looking forward to it all kicking off," he told Sky Sports News.

"After speaking to the manager and hearing the direction this club are going in, I wanted to help that happen."
