Former Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Karl Henry has signed for Championship side QPR for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the club and boasts Championship experience from former clubs Wolves and Stoke City.

Wolves were relegated to League One at the end of last season and Henry was deemed surplus to requirements by new manager Kenny Jackett.

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Rednapp told QPR's official website: "He's a good character and a winner, the type of lad I like. I think he will come in and do a great job for us.

"We are trying to change the club around a bit and Karl's a piece of the jigsaw that can hopefully help us build a team that can challenge for promotion."

Henry spent seven years at Molineux - who he signed for back in 2006 from Stoke City. He made 272 appearances for Wolves.

"Harry Redknapp being manager was a massive pull and a big attraction," said Henry.

"I spoke to him and, hearing where he wants to be, I jumped at the chance of joining the club."

Henry becomes Redknapp's third signing of the summer transfer window - following Danny Simpson and Richard Dunne to the west London side.
