Queens Park Rangers boss Ian Holloway believes having Ariel Borysiuk back at Loftus Road will be "like a new signing".
The Poland international was loaned out to Polish outfit Lechia Gdańsk in January just six months after moving to QPR.
The 25-year-old made 14 appearances, scoring one goal, in the Ekstraklasa before returning to Loftus Road earlier this summer for pre-season.
And Holloway insists the tough-tackling midfielder does have a future at the Championship club, adding that team-mate and countryman Pawel Wszołek has been helping break down the language barrier.
“I’m delighted to have Ariel Borysiuk back,” Holloway told www.qpr.co.uk .
“I like his calmness and the way he passes the ball and the way he moves. It was the fact he spoke hardly any English. Pawel [Wszołek] came through that though and he’s helping Ariel now.
“He deserves the right for me to keep him and add him to my squad. For me that is like a new signing.”
