QPR manager Mark Hughes believes that the club’s project is the reason why he is able to complete a number of transfer coups.

The R’s summer signings have included Ryan Nelsen, Andy Johnson, Robert Green, Samba Diakite and Junior Hoilett.

However the west Londoners have also completed deals for Ji-Sung Park, Jose Bosingwa and the club have also brought in Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar, subject to international clearance, and Real Madrid midfielder Esteban Granero in the past two days.

“What we are doing at QPR is having an impact on players,” Hughes said.

“It is probably true to say that if we had approached certain players three or four months ago about joining the club, the suggestion wouldn’t have been entertained.

“But people now know we are serious and we are trying to do something different here.

“And that message is out there now which is why we are able to sit in front of quality players and, once we are given that opportunity, we feel we have a good story to tell them.

“That’s why players are deciding that QPR is a great option.”
