QPR signs Jose Bosingwa on 3-year deal

Queens Park Rangers has signed former Chelsea defender Jose Bosingwa on a three-year deal.

The Premier League club announced the move on its website on Friday.

QPR manager Mark Hughes says the 29-year-old player ''has got a winning mentality and that is what I want to have around the place.''

Bosingwa, a versatile operator in defense and midfield, won the Champions League with Porto in 2004 and with Chelsea last season. He also won a Premier League title and three FA Cups with Chelsea.


He joins QPR on a free transfer after being released by Chelsea.

QPR starts its league season at home against Swansea on Saturday but Bosingwa signed too late to play.
