The 31-year-old centre-back, who has 68 caps for the US, has been training with Harry Redknapp's side after leaving his club in Portugal at the end of last season.

"I'm thrilled to get this period over with and finally secure my future," he said.

"QPR are a club with huge ambitions to return to the Premier League and I wanted to be part of it."

Onyewu, who spent time on loan at Newcastle in 2007 and is known as 'Guchi', added: "I had a really good feeling about QPR from the moment I arrived here. I've been welcomed by the club and feel good here.

"I'm looking forward to what will hopefully be a very successful and happy time here.

"This was an opportunity that was presented to me, that I was interested in, and I'm really pleased to be here.

"I want to help the club get back to the Premier League - that's why I've come here.

"Harry believes I can come in and help the team out and when you've got the backing of the coach and his staff, ultimately that tells me that I've made the right decision to come here and try this new challenge.

"England is a fantastic place to play and I can't wait to get started here."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
