QPR seal loan signing of United’s Fabio

QPR have completed the signing of defender Fabio from Manchester United on a season-long loan.

Benfica and Sporting Lisbon had also expressed an interest in the 21-year-old Brazilian, but Rangers boss Mark Hughes was keen to take him to west London.

His arrival will significantly add to Hughes’ options as he can play at left or right-back or further forward.

Fabio, who turns 22 next week, has made 53 first-team appearances for United, with 15 of them coming last season.

He is Rangers’ fifth signing of the summer, joining Samba Diakite, Robert Green, Andrew Johnson and Ryan Nelsen at Loftus Road.
