Queens Park Rangers has signed Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips and Sunderland defender Anton Ferdinand.

Wright-Phillips was locked in talks with the Loftus Road outfit on deadline day, while also trying to negotiate his exit from Eastlands.

All parties have now reached an agreement and Wright-Phillips will continue his career in the capital, having penned a three-year contract.

The England international, who had slipped down the pecking order at City, admits he is looking forward to playing his part in what he believes will be a bright future for QPR.

"I am delighted. I am really looking forward to it all kicking off," Wright-Phillips told Sky Sports News HD shortly after completing a move.

"After speaking to the manager and seeing what direction the club was going, I just really wanted to be a part of helping that to happen.

"With a few signings, and with squad we have got, we are heading in the right direction."

While delighted to have made a move to Loftus Road, Wright-Phillips admits he will find it difficult to sever all ties with City - the club that helped to launch his career.

He said: "I just have to say thank you for all the support you have given me during my 10 years story there and I will never forget you. There will always be a blue spot in my heart."

Versatile defender Ferdinand moves to Loftus Road for an undisclosed fee and has penned a three-year contract.

Ferdinand made his name at West Ham and admits he is delighted to be back in London at an ambitious club.

He told QPR's official website: "The club's moving forward and things seem to be buzzing around here at the moment.

"I came down to London on Wednesday and spoke to the gaffer, and was impressed with his thoughts on where the club is going to go.

"I've heard good things about the manager and, after speaking with him, it's clear that he wants the best for me and he wants me to do well.

"As soon as I came out of the meeting with him, I knew that QPR was the club for me."

PR boss Neil Warnock added: "Anton's a player that I have always admired.

"He's got so much to offer. When you look at centre-halves in this country, you won't see much better than Anton on a good day.

"He's still got a lot to prove and hopefully he's at the right team to do that with."
