Queens Park Rangers sign USA international Oguchi Onyewu on a free transfer.

Queens Park Rangers have announced that USA international Oguchi Onyewu has joined them on a free transfer.

Manager Harry Redknapp has decided to offer the 31-year-old, who left Sporting Lisbon at the end of last season, a place in the team following a trial at Loftus Road.

"QPR are a club with huge ambitions to return to the Premier League and I wanted to be part of it," Onyewu told the club's official website.

"I had a really good feeling about QPR from the moment I arrived here. I've been welcomed by the club and I feel good here already.

"I've already integrated well into the group, so I'm looking forward to what will hopefully be a very successful and happy time here."

The defender, who has earned 68 caps for the USA, spent a loan spell at Newcastle United in 2007.
