The 24-year-old turned down the offer of a new contract at Oakwell, where he had played since 2004, to pen a two-year deal at Loftus Road after also rejecting a last-gasp bid from Norwich.
Nardiello said: "Once I had heard of QPR´s interest and spoken to (manager) John Gregory, my mind was made up. I just want to cement my place in the side and perform to the best of my ability. I really enjoyed my time at Barnsley but I just felt that this was the right time to move on."
