Next Story

Queens Park Rangers new boy Jason Puncheon is determined to prove his worth in west London and has set his sights on earning himself a permanent deal with the Hoops following his deadline day arrival from Southampton.

The 25-year-old winger moves to Loftus Road on an initial loan deal until January 1, and after finally resolving his future, paid tribute to Rs boss Neil Warnock for working tirelessly to make the move possible.

"I am more than delighted that this move has gone through," he told the club's official website. "It dragged on over the summer but it's all done now and I am looking forward to getting some minutes on the pitch as and when I can.

"The gaffer played a massive part in me coming to QPR. Once I met him and had a chat with him, there was no turning back.


"He has made some great signings, bringing in players who have vast experience in the Premier League. Having them as my team-mates can only help me."

After a busy transfer window, that also saw the deadline day arrival of Shaun Wright-Phillips and Anton Ferdinand, adding to the likes of Joey Barton, Jay Bothroyd, DJ Campbell, Luke Young, Danny Gabbidon and Armand Traore - there is renewed hope amongst Rangers fans for what the future holds.

But Puncheon is not getting ahead of himself, and says that Barclays Premier League survival remains the primary aim, before the club looks to establish itself in the top-flight.

"Our target has to be to stay in the Premier League, you can't look beyond that," he confirmed. "The sooner we can get points on the board the better.

"But I am more than confident that with the signings the gaffer has made, along with the quality that we already had at the club, we will be okay."
