Queens Park Rangers have announced the signing of former Cardiff striker Jay Bothroyd on a free transfer.
As revealed by skysports.com on Monday, QPR were on the verge of signing the England international after Bothroyd underwent a medical at Loftus Road.
Bothroyd has now signed a three-year deal at the Premier League new-boys after passing the medical and agreeing personal terms.
The 28-year-old was available on a free transfer after seeing out his contract at Cardiff earlier this summer.
Bothroyd is QPR's first signing of the summer as they prepare for life back in the top flight and the former Arsenal man admitted Neil Warnock played a big part in his decision to move to QPR.
"I spoke to the manager and he told me how much he wanted me," Bothroyd told the club's official website.
"He convinced me that this was the right place to be.
"He told me the direction that he wants to go in and the way he wants to play.
"I think this club is heading in the right direction and has got a lot of ambition."
Warnock was delighted to finally get his man after beating off interest from a number of clubs to land the forward.
"In bringing Jay in, we have managed to secure an excellent player which augers well for the forthcoming campaign," said Warnock.
"We have been chasing him for a number of weeks and it has been frustrating at times.
"We have had to have a lot of patience with this but, as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait.
"We are now working hard to add another new face to the squad and we hope to have that done very soon."
