QPR boss Hughes: Granero wanted to join us in January
Granero signed from Real Madrid on Thursday night.
"He wanted to come in January but Real Madrid got an injury a couple of days before we were supposed to conclude it so they didn't let him out," Hughes said.
"He's going to be a good player for us. He has been brought up at a top club since he was nine and having been at Real Madrid has values and standards."
