Queens Park Rangers sign Niko Kranjcar on a season-long loan from Dynamo Kiev, reuniting the midfielder with Hoops boss Harry Redknapp for the second time.

Harry Redknapp has signed Niko Kranjcar for the third time by making him Queens Park Rangers' third loan signing of transfer deadline day.

The Hoops boss has previously worked with the Dynamo Kiev midfielder at both Portsmouth and Tottenham Hotspur, from where he has recruited two of his other former players today.

Cameroonian international full-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto and highly-rated England Under-21 midfielder Tom Carroll have both linked up with Redknapp at Loftus Road for the 2013-2014 campaign.

Redknapp told QPR's official website: "Niko's a crowd pleaser – he gets people off their seats. He's a top player and someone who will add great quality to the squad.

"He can play in a variety of positions – off the frontman, out wide on either side – and he's always a threat. He gets at players and makes things happen.

"He's someone I obviously know a lot about and he'll be a fantastic addition for us."

Twenty-nine-year-old Krancjar, who left the Lillywhites for Kiev in 2012, follows the Spurs pair in joining Championship outfit Rangers on a season-long loan deal.
