QPR seal signing of Hughes from Fulham

QPR have completed the signing of defender Aaron Hughes from Fulham.

The 34-year-old Northern Ireland international, who made more than 250 appearances for the Whites, has signed a contract at Loftus Road for the rest of the season.

Rangers made their pre-deadline move for him following the recent news that Danny Simpson is likely to be out for some time with a back problem.

Hughes, signed by Fulham from Aston Villa in June 2007, can play at right-back or in the centre of defence.

“It’s an excellent signing for us,” Rangers boss Harry Redknapp.

“I’ve always liked him. He’s a good player and a good professional and we’ve needed someone at the back.”
