All Whites captain signs with QPR

11:52 am on 19 June 2012

The All Whites captain Ryan Nelsen has signed a one-year contract with the London Premier League club Queens Park Rangers, teaming up again with manager Mark Hughes.

Nelsen, who played under the former Wales boss at Blackburn Rovers, spent the closing months of the last Premier League season at Tottenham Hotspur, and he says the chance to work with Hughes again was a "massive draw".

Hughes was equally complementary, describing Nelsen as a fantastic professional with a great work ethic.
