Adel Taarabt insists QPR's new-look team will come good.

Samba Diakite took a number of games last season to get used to the pace of the Premier League after his January move from French outfit Nancy, and Taarabt insists QPR's new recruits will need more time to get up to speed.

He said: "We have a lot of players it's true but we have foreign players who have not yet adapted to English football.

"For Esteban he tries to get the ball down and play it there - but it has been difficult and we need more time."
