QPR have completed a permanent deal for Fulham midfielder Stefan Johansen. The Norwegian midfielder, who joins for an undisclosed fee, has signed a three-year contract.
The arrival of Johansen, 30, in the January transfer window saw the R’s climb from 19th in the Championship table to finish ninth.
“It is great to be back,” Johansen told QPR’s website. “This is a good fit. When the gaffer brought me in last season I felt the way I play suits the way he wants to play. He has played a big part in making this permanent.
“It has been a great transfer window for the club. You want to keep building on what you did last season. It’s about getting a squad together which will hopefully find consistency over a full season.
“Everyone knows how tough the league is.”
QPR manager Mark Warburton added: “The impact he had here last season, both on and off the pitch, was evident for all to see. It has taken a lot of work from a lot of people to get this across the line. This is a huge signing for us.”
