Defender completes switch to Loftus Road

Left-back Armand Traore has joined the QPR revolution after completing his move from Arsenal on a three-year deal. The 21-year-old spent time on loan with Serie A outfit Juventus last season and has made just one Premier League appearance for the Gunners in the last 15 months in Sunday's 8-2 defeat to Manchester United. Traore has now completed his move across London and becomes the third signing of the Tony Fernandes era following Joey Barton and Luke Young. "When I talked to Neil Warnock he was very passionate about what I could bring to the club," the Frenchman told the club's official website. "He was very motivated about playing me week in, week out, and that's what I need at this stage of my career. I've not been able to prove and show what I'm all about because I've been at two big, big clubs like Juventus and Arsenal. "I'm looking forward to coming here and playing regular football. The ambition of the new owners and the calibre of players they are signing is something that really attracted me to the club."
