QPR signing Nedum Onuoha has revealed that manager Mark Hughes had a major influence in him coming to the club.

The 25-year old defender today completed the signing of a four-and-a-half-year deal to join the R's from Manchester City and he is looking forward to resuming his career under his ex-City boss.

"This was the right time for me to join a club like QPR," he told the club's official website.

"The manager obviously played a massive factor in my decision to come here. I've worked with him before and he always wants players around him who are open and honest.

"He wouldn't have come here if he didn't believe that there was a squad of players here that can achieve the goals he has.

"The ambition of the owners was really appealing.

"This is my club now and I'll give everything to help us succeed."
