Fulham have announced the signing of QPR playmaker Adel Taarabt on a season-long loan from QPR.

The 24-year-old played under current Fulham boss Martin Jol when the pair were at Tottenham, with the Dutchman confirming on Monday evening that a move for the Morocco international was close.

Taarabt, who was relegated with Rangers last season, had expressed a desire not to play in the SkyBet Championship and has now sealed an immediate return to the top flight with QPR's near neighbours.
