Queens Park Rangers have had a turbulent decade where they had two failed stints in the Premier League.
When in the Premier League, QPR and owner Tony Fernandes won international discussion for their audacious signings, including many continental players.
The January window has seen many of those sorts of signings for QPR, with a lot of money being spent.
It won’t quite be the cash-splashing month like potentially five or six years ago for QPR, but this January promises to be a key month, where Steve McClaren will aim to bolster his squads chances.
Over the years, QPR have used this window wisely, and that’s what we expect them to do again this time round.
Here, we look at the top three January signings of QPR’s history.
Do you agree, or can you think of better additions that they have made in the month of January that have led them to achieving their goals? Let us know in the comments section.
Here they are…
Luke Freeman joined the club for an undisclosed fee in January 2017, making his debut in a 2-2 draw with eventually promoted Newcastle United.
has now made over 100 appearances for the R’s, but when he was signed from Bristol City in 2017, he was not regarded as a superstar signing.
He has been Mr. Consistent for QPR, and at 26, he still has the peak of his career ahead of him.
Wayne Routledge signed for QPR just days after his loan spell at Cardiff was terminated, for a fee of £600,000. He then left for Newcastle, signing for QPR again in January 2011.
Although his first stint was great, his second was by far his best.
Rutledge scored on his debut, as well as a goal against Hull City to all but seal QPR’s place in the Premier League the following season.
Bobby Zamora has scored goals wherever he has gone in his career, and QPR is no exception to that. He joined the club in January 2012, on deadline day, from Fulham.
The rest, as they say, is history. Zamora scored one of the most memorable goals of Championship history when he netted in the 90th minute against Derby County in 2014 to send QPR back to the Premier League after a one-season absence.
