QPR have reached an agreement to sign central defender Ryan Nelsen on an initial one-year deal.

Nelsen will move to Loftus Road on July 1 following the conclusion of his contract at Tottenham. The New Zealander, 34, joined Spurs in January after seven years at Blackburn where he played under Rangers boss Mark Hughes.

"I am really pleased to be joining QPR," Nelsen told www.qpr.co.uk. "I have obviously got a lot of history with the manager and that was a massive draw for me."
