Geoff Cameron has returned to Queens Park Rangers from Stoke City on a free transfer, signing a one-year deal at Loftus Road.

The 34-year-old’s contract also has the option of a further year, he is re-joining QPR after he made 19 appearances and scored one goal on loan last season.

The versatile midfielder, who can also operate in defence, is relishing being back in west London and believes he can one of new boss’ Mark Warburton main leaders.  

“It’s great to be back,” Cameron said.

“I really enjoyed my time here last year – it’s a family-orientated environment and this move is the best fit for myself and my family.

“The manager wants to get the ball down and play good football.

“Hopefully, myself and Angel [Rangel], who has also come back, can use our experience to help what is a young squad.

“I’m here to help the team in any way that I can – whether that’s leadership on the pitch or off it as well.

“For me, I’m excited for this role and I’m excited to be here. I just want to enjoy my football, like I did here last season.”

It’s been a busy week for the Rangers after right-back Darnell Furlong left and joined fellow Championship club West Bromwich Albion on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old, the son of club legend Paul, spent a decade with QPR, where he made his first-team debut in the Premier League in 2015.

Meanwhile, striker Jan Mlakar became the club’s tenth summer signing when he joined on a season-long deal from Brighton & Hove Albion.

The 20-year-old Slovenian signed for the Premier League side in January before being loaned back to NK Maribor, where he helped secure the league title in his homeland.
