Hoops switch thrills Wright-Phillips

Next Story

Shaun Wright-Phillips is looking forward to getting on the pitch in a QPR shirt, as the club sealed a successful transfer deadline day with three signings.

Anton Ferdinand and Jason Puncheon will join Wright-Phillips at the club this season, along with nine new faces including Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton and Blackpool forward DJ Campbell.

The signings that have taken place since Tony Fernandes took over at the club have shown an intent to keep QPR in the Barclays Premier League, and Wright-Phillips believes the feeling at the club reflects this goal.

"I am delighted. I am really looking forward to it all kicking off," Wright-Phillips told Sky Sports News.

"After speaking to the manager and seeing what direction the club was going, I just really wanted to be a part of helping that to happen.


"With a few signings, and with squad we have got, we are heading in the right direction."

Wright-Phillips moves to the Hoops from Manchester City, where he spent the majority of his career with a spell at Chelsea in between.

And the 29-year-old insisted he won’t forget his roots in Manchester, telling City fans: "I just have to say thank you for all the support you have given me during my 10 year story there and I will never forget you. There will always be a blue spot in my heart."

The former England international will get his first chance to shine for the Loftus Road outfit against Newcastle after the international break, with Barton's debut also expected to come against his former club.
