Matt Smith has made the short move across west London by joining QPR from Fulham.
The tall striker has signed a three-and-a-half year contract at Loftus Road, after QPR paid an undisclosed fee for his services.
QPR is a club with a terrific history and heritage so it’s a big honour for me to be a QPR player. I’m delighted to be here and want to take this fantastic opportunity with both hands.
I want to get back playing regularly and help QPR win games. If my goals can contribute to that, then all the better, but as long as we’re winning games, that’s the most important thing.
I can’t wait to experience what it will feel like to pull on a Rangers shirt and play in front of the fans at Loftus Road.
Abel Hernandez missed two penalties in two second-half minutes as Hull City were dumped out of the FA Cup by Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Former Hull City player Sone Aluko fired Fulham into the lead in the 17th minute, only for Evandro to level for the visitors shortly after half-time.
But goals from Chris Martin, Ryan Sessegnon and Stefan Johansen then gave Fulham an unassailable lead, and Hull City's misery was compounded when Marco Bettinelli twice denied Hernandez from the penalty spot.
Hull City have been knocked out of the EFL Cup and FA Cup in the space of a week, and manager Marco Silva's sole focus will now be on keeping the club in the Premier League.
Idrissa Sylla headed home a late winner to help QPR earn a 2-1 victory over near neighbours Fulham and ensure Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink ended a difficult week on high.
Manager Hasselbaink had been caught up in the Daily Telegraph's investigation into corruption in football but took his place in the dugout and saw his QPR side win at Craven Cottage for the first time since 1980.
And he rode his luck on the way as Fulham missed two penalties and a host of chances before substitute Sylla headed home in the 87th minute of this west London derby. Conor Washington's first league goal for QPR had opened the scoring before Tim Ream levelled up, only for Sylla to win it.
Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen is closing in on a move to Fulham.
Hoops manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed the Norwegian was on his way out of Parkhead after failing to agree a contract extension.
"Stefan's going into the last year of his contract," Rodgers said. "I have found him a really good guy. He has worked over pre-season and it's been difficult because he's been unable to reach an agreement with the club.
"But I think he has always wanted to play in England, so the opportunity has come for him. He wasn't going to sign a new deal, so it's one that probably works well for both really.
"I don't think it's complete yet but it's something that could happen, possibly in the next couple of days."
Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez watched his side go down 1-0 at Fulham and then described it as a "wake-up call".
The Magpies were beaten by Matt Smith's first-half header in a lacklustre Championship season opener following summer spending of almost £45 million.
Benitez knows Newcastle cannot afford many similar performances if they are to immediately return to the Premier League.
"I'm really disappointed because we did not play at the level we expected," he said. "We did not win the ball too much in the second ball and were not keeping the ball properly. We were not concentrating. This game could be a wake-up call for everyone.
"The only positive is it is the beginning of the season and we can wake up. At least everyone has to realise it has to be like this for the rest of the season.
"We didn't play at the level we want to play and have to play if you want to score goals and win games. You have to be much better. We have to realise this is a tough competition and we have to be much better."
Newcastle had two penalty appeals waved away for handballs by Ryan Tunnicliffe and Tomas Kalas but Benitez refused to criticise referee Simon Hooper.
"The first one was clear and not given," he said. "The second one depends on the referee."
