QPR have pulled off a double coup in their bid to avoid relegation, with Bobby Zamora and Djibril Cisse signing on transfer deadline day.
Zamora will be reunited with former manager Mark Hughes after completing a switch from Fulham for a fee thought to be in the region of four million pounds.
The England forward arrived at Craven Cottage for 4.8 million pounds in 2008.
He has scored seven goals in 29 appearances this season, but is widely reported to have fallen out with Fulham manager Martin Jol.
Likewise, 30-year-old Cisse has agreed personal terms for a reported fee of four million pounds, and arrives at Loftus Road on a two-and-a-half-year deal.
The former Liverpool forward, signed from Italian club Lazio, will begin his second stint in England after spells at Anfield and Sunderland.
“I have unfinished business here in England,” Cisse said.
“The English league is the best in the world. It is the league that suits me the most.”
“When I talked to the manager (Hughes), he spoke highly of the club and where he wants to take it over the next few years. He wanted to sign me at Manchester City and now I am finally here with him at QPR.”
“QPR have a hugely ambitious project. He (Hughes) wants to achieve big things here – that was all I needed to hear from him.”
