Ryan Nelsen has told New Zealand newspaper The Press he is looking forward to being reunited with Mark Hughes at QPR.
Hughes signed Nelsen for Blackburn, where the defender spent seven years before agreeing a short-term deal with Tottenham at the end of January.
Confirming that he has agreed a one-year contract at Loftus Road, New Zealand captain Nelsen, 34, said: “I owe him [Hughes] pretty much everything. He gave me my chance.
“That was a big factor. I know Mark and his staff really well, and they all really helped me when I was first over here in England, so it’s nice to go full circle towards the end of my career.
“Hopefully, I can still help them [QPR] out. They’ve got a lot of ambition – it seems like it’s going to be a good fit.”
