QPR captain Nedum Onuoha has praised the impact of the Hoops' new boys who have joined the squad this summer.

Ian Holloway added seven new signings to his squad during the transfer window, and Onuoha says that it's up to the senior players to help the additions settle into life at Loftus Road.

Speaking Get West London, he said: "Everyone is bedding in well. For a lot of people this is the biggest club that they've played for so they're almost in awe, but it's up to myself and other people to let them know that they're here for a reason.

"If they can show us what they're about then they'll be a very good signing for the football club."

One player who has particularly shone since arriving at the club is midfielder Josh Scowen.

The former Barnsley man has made quite an impression since arriving from Oakwell, and Onuoha says that the 24-year-old brings several different qualities to the team.

He said: "Josh has been excellent. He sits two across from me in the dressing room so i get to speak to him a little bit, but on the field he's very good. He's good on the ball, but he's also very aggressive for someone who weighs the same as a carrier bag!

"He's very good to play with. He reads the game well and he's as good going forward as he is in defence. He's got a skill where he's good at sensing danger, and not everyone has that, but he does and that with the other qualities he has makes him a very good player."
