QPR have completed the signing of Sunderland defender Anton Ferdinand for an undisclosed fee.
The 26-year-old signed a three-year deal to join up with the Premier League newcomers.
Ferdinand only has a year left on his contract at the Stadium of Light and could have left the club on a free transfer next summer.
"The club's moving forward and things seem to be buzzing around here at the moment", he said.
The centre-back moved to the north east for a reported fee of £8m three years ago from West Ham.
