Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has signed with Queens Park Rangers on a free transfer.
The 35-year-old held talks with manager Harry Redknapp earlier this week following his return from Brazil, where he was as an analyst for BBC Sport.
Ferdinand, who previously played under Redknapp at West Ham, has signed a one-year deal at the Premier League club.
“I had a lot of offers from all over the world but the draw for me was to play in the Premier League,” he said.
“It’s not about money – I had loads of more lucrative offers available to me.
“I still feel I’ve got something to offer and I’m excited about helping this club cement its place in the Premier League.”
