UNITED States centre-back Oguchi Onyewu has vowed to drag QPR back into the Premier League after signing for the club on a free transfer.

Journeyman Onyewu, who had a loan spell at Newcastle in 2007, had been training with Harry Redknapp’s Championship high-fliers after his contract at Sporting Lisbon expired in the summer.

“QPR have huge ambitions to return to the Premier League and I wanted to be part of it,” said the 30-year-old. “I’m looking forward to hopefully a very successful time.”
