QPR have added midfield strength to their side, after agreeing to sign South Korean international Park Ji-sung from Manchester United.

The BBC reported that the deal could potentially be worth £5 million. QPR will pay an initial £2 million for the 31-year-old midfielder.

The energetic midfielder first caught the eye of the world's football teams after the 2002 World Cup, where he impressed Guus Hiddink enough to warrant a move to PSV Eindhoven.

The midfielder made over 70 appearances for the Dutch outfit before earning a £4 million move to Old Trafford. He made 133 Premier League appearances for Manchester United, scoring 19 goals.

Mark Hughes's QPR have looked to Manchester United to strengthen their squad before. Last season they loaned Italian striker Federico Macheda, and have recently confirmed the season-long loan signing of left back Fabio from the Red Devils.

Regarding Fabio, QPR manager Mark Hughes told QPR's club website:

"It's a great opportunity for us to loan a good, young player, who has decent experience of playing for a top Club like Manchester United.He's played a lot of senior games for United, so it shows the quality he's got.I know they think very highly of him and we believe he has all the attributes to be a success here next season."
