Queens Park Rangers have signed USA international defender Oguchi Onyewu on a short-term contract. The 31-year-old centre-back, who played 11 times for Newcastle during a loan spell in 2007, was a free agent after leaving Sporting Lisbon this summer.

"QPR are a club with huge ambitions to return to the Premier League and I wanted to be part of it," he said.

"I had a really good feeling about QPR from the moment I arrived here. I've been welcomed by the club and I feel good here already.

"I've already integrated well into the group, so I'm looking forward to what will hopefully be a very successful and happy time here."
