Julio Cesar remains happy at QPR

Arsenal goalkeeper target Julio Cesar insists he's not disappointed he failed to secure a move away from Queens Park Rangers this summer, and is ready to help the west London club in their bid for promotion back to the Premier League, reports the London Evening Standard.

The Brazil international was expected to leave Loftus Road during the transfer window, with numerous clubs - including Napoli and Fiorentina - understood to be keen on his signature, after suffering relegation to the Championship.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was among Cesar's long list of admirers, as he looked to bring a new goalkeeper to the Emirates Stadium, to provide competition for current first-choice Wojciech Szczesny.

However, the Frenchman ended up completing a season-long loan deal for Palermo stopper Emiliano Viviano, which effectively ended Arsenal's interest in the QPR star, who earns £90,000-a-week for Harry Redknapp's side.

The 34-year-old is now ready to roll his sleeves up and fight for his place in the team with Robert Green, and has no qualms about playing in England's second-tier, even in the build-up to next year's 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

"I didn't think in any moment about leaving QPR," Cesar told the London Evening Standard. "Of course, if anything came up, as it happened, it was something to sit down and talk about with the club's chairman.

"But, in my head, things have gone back to normal. I don't think I'll have to do anything different due to the fact I am in the Championship.

"It's a strong competition in England with competitive teams. We play 46 games, eight more games than in the Premier League."
