Mark Hughes is delighted to have added fresh faces to his Queens Park Rangers squad early in the summer, and has hinted that there may be further additions to come.
Samba Diakite, Ryan Nelsen, Andy Johnson and Robert Green have helped to bolster the Loftus Road ranks.
They will now have a full pre-season in which to work with Hughes and buy into his footballing philosophy.
The Welsh tactician was expected to be busy this summer, with QPR having only narrowly avoided relegation out of the Premier League last season.
Hughes is determined to avoid a repeat of those struggles this time around and is confident that those drafted in will prove to be useful additions.
"Getting business done early was always the aim," he told the club's official website.
"As soon as the season finished I was scouring Europe, going to France, Germany and Spain all in the space of six days, to look at players, with a view to getting business done early and getting in front of our rivals and setting a marker in terms of what we're trying to do here.
"Hopefully the early work we've done will reap benefits in the future.
"If we can get everyone through the door that we want then we'll be absolutely delighted."
