Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar joins QPR on a four-year deal

Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar will join QPR on a four-year deal, subject to receiving international clearance and being granted a visa.

The 32-year-old has agreed a contract until the summer of 2016, ending his seven-year stint with Inter Milan.

Cesar, who has won 64 caps for his country, told QPR's website: 'I'm so happy and excited to be here. 'The ambition of this club was presented to me by the chairman and the coach and I couldn't have been more impressed.

'The desire to achieve things at this club is clear for everyone to see and I wanted to be part of that. I have come here to compete for the shirt and give my all.'

Cesar, who will wear the No 33 shirt, is likely to be in contention for the club's next home game against Chelsea - after the international break - on September 15.

And the South American cannot wait to get started, adding: 'The English Premier League is the best division in the world. "Everyone wants to play here and I am no different. Now I just want to give my all to the club and show the fans what I am capable of.

'This is a really exciting move for me and I can't wait to get going.'

The Brazilian's arrival comes as a bitter blow to Rob Green who only moved to the club in the summer.

Hughes said: 'I haven't had a chance to really talk to him about it. Obviously, I was concerned with the preparation for the game, but certainly I will sit down with Rob and go through it.'
