The striker arrives for an undisclosed fee, understood to be around £1 million, and has signed a three-year deal with the West London club.

Polter had fallen down the pecking order at Mainz and spent last season on loan at FC Union Berlin, where he scored an impressive 14 goals in 29 appearances.

The 24-year-old began his career at Wolfsburg where he started with the second string outfit, finding the net 19 times in 68 games. He did feature for the first-team but only made 12 appearances, scoring twice.

Polter later had a loan spell at FC Nurnberg before joining Mainz in 2013, where he made just 13 outings.

QPR are resigned to losing Charlie Austin this summer as a number of Premier League chase the striker, and boss Chris Ramsey has moved quickly to sign the former Germany Under-21 international.

The German was delighted to make the move to England: “It’s my dream to play in England, so I couldn’t be happier.” he told the club’s official website.

“To play for Queens Park Rangers, at this stage of my career, is really good for me and something I am very excited about.
“It’s a physical league, but I’m a physical player, a team player, and I feel I will adapt.
“I’m really looking forward to playing here at Loftus Road in front of the supporters.”
