QPR have signed rookie Tottenham midfielder Adel Taarabt on loan until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old Moroccan has been sent across London by Spurs boss Harry Redknapp to get some first-team games under his belt and goes straight into the Rangers squad for the Coca-Cola Championship trip to Southampton.

"Harry Redknapp told me Tottenham are not really in a position to give young players like me an opportunity right now, and he said QPR were keen on me," Taarabt told

"He told me to come here and show what I can do. As soon as he told me about the move I was interested.

"Other Championship clubs came in for me as well but QPR is a team that plays football in the way I like to play. So that is why I wanted to come here."

Taarabt has made 15 appearances for Spurs, all from the bench, since joining from Lens in 2007.
