Onouha signs for QPR

Per The Guardian:

"This was the right time for me to join a club like QPR. "The manager obviously played a massive factor in my decision to come here. I've worked with him before and he always wants players around him who are open and honest.

"He wouldn't have come here if he didn't believe that there was a squad of players here that can achieve the goals he has.

"The ambition of the owners was really appealing. This is my club now and I'll give everything to help us succeed."

Having failed to ever really establish himself at the club for any great length, Onouha found himself fall even further down the pecking order under Roberto Mancini (something I wrote about previously here). Onouha had his most productive spell at City under Mark Hughes (before he spent big on Kolo Toure and Joleon Lescott) and looking at the incumbents in the QPR squad should immediately slot in to the side - although it will be interesting to see if Hughes utilises him at right back or centre back.

Onouha has always seemed to crave an opportunity for regular football and although currently at the wrong end of the Premier League table, there is potential for QPR to make progress and it could be the ideal move for Onouha to finally make good on his undoubted promise.
