South Korean midfielder Park Ji-sung has joined Queens Park Rangers from Premier League rivals Manchester United on a two-year contract, the west London club said on Monday.
"This is a real coup for QPR," manager Mark Hughes, himself a former United player, told the club website (www.qpr.co.uk).
The club did not disclose the fee for the 31-year-old, who said he was looking forward to help take the club to a new level, but media reports said the agreement could be worth 5.0 million pounds ($7.75 million).
Park, who made more than 200 appearances for United since joining from PSV Eindhoven in 2005, has a reputation as a big game player able to relentlessly break up opposition attacks and send his own team mates on the offensive.
He was the first Asian to compete in a Champions League final in 2009, and won four Premier League titles at United. The former captain of his country, he made 100 appearances for South Korea between 2000 and 2011.
"His record speaks for itself," said Hughes. "He has been a big player for Manchester United and played a big part in their success in recent years.
