Sky Sports sources understand that Queens Park Rangers have signed former Chelsea defender Jose Bosingwa.

The Portugal international right-back saw his four-year spell at Stamford Bridge come to an end in the summer when he was not offered an extension to his contract.

The 29-year-old, who signed from Porto for £16million in May 2008, made 43 appearances for the Blues last term and started both the FA Cup final success against Liverpool and the UEFA Champions League triumph over Bayern Munich.

He was deemed surplus to requirements as Roberto di Matteo looked to re-shape his squad but has not had to wait long to secure his Premier League future.

Loftus Road boss Mark Hughes, backed by the finances of owner Tony Fernandes, has handed a deal to Bosingwa as he looks to establish the West London club in the top flight.
