Manchester United defender Fabio da Silva has signed a season-long loan with QPR.

The Brazilian full-back, who can play on either side of the back four, has played 53 first-team matches for the Red Devils but has rarely been a first-choice starter. He will now have the chance to push for consistent senior football at Loftus Road.

"It's a great opportunity for us to loan a good, young player, who has decent experience of playing for a top club like Manchester United," Mark Hughes told www.qpr.co.uk.
