QPR sign USA defender Oguchi Onyewu
Queens Park Rangers has signed USA defender Oguchi Onyewu who has been without a club since leaving Sporting Lisbon at the end on a free transfer.
31 year old Onyewu is an American footballer who plays as a centre back as is no stranger to English football having previously played for Newcastle United back in 2007 whilst on loan from Belgian side Standard Liege. Onyewu failed to make an impact in the Newcastle side and the loan deal didn’t turn into a permanent signing.
Onyewu, who has 68 international caps, said: “QPR are a club with huge ambitions to return to the Premier League and I wanted to be part of it.
“Harry believes I can come in and help the team out and when you have got the backing of the coach and his staff, ultimately that tells me that I have made the right decision. I am looking forward to what will hopefully be a very successful and happy time here.”
