QPR have landed Newcastle United defender Danny Simpson on a three-year deal.
The former Manchester United youngster will officially complete his move to Loftus Road once his contract with the Magpies expires at the end of the month.
Simpson, 26, has a wealth of experience, with almost 200 games across spells with Sunderland, Ipswich, Blackburn and Newcastle after progressing through the Old Trafford ranks.
“I want to play week in week out. That was the main thing for me. Harry wants me playing and he wants me involved,” he told www.qpr.co.uk.
“He’s a top manager, and as soon as I spoke to him I knew this was the right move for me.
“I’ve always admired him. He is a great man in the game and I have a lot of respect for him.
“In training and games I will give 110 per-cent. I know Harry has spoken to other coaches about me and I am sure one thing they would have said is that I am a good pro and that’s what he wants in his squad.”
He added: “From what I have heard from Harry and the staff I have spoken to, along with some of the players here who I know well, they are very determined to put things behind them and start afresh and get back into the Premier League where the club belongs.
“I want to play my part in that and do everything I can for the club and the fans. I really think we can go straight back up.”
