Gabbidon seals move to QPR

QPR have completed the signing of Wales defender Danny Gabbidon on a one-year contract.

Gabbidon, who turns 32 next month, was a free agent after leaving West Ham, and had been on trial with Rangers.

He featured during the recent pre-season trip to Devon and Cornwall, where he did enough to convince R’s boss Neil Warnock to retain him.

“It makes sense, as Danny’s a good player – one I’ve always liked – and we were looking to sign someone in that position,” Warnock told West London Sport.

Gabbidon made 87 league starts during his time at West Ham, who signed him from Cardiff in 2005.

He played for the Welsh club against QPR in the 2003 Division Two play-off final.
