Queens Park Rangers have completed the £1million signing of defender Anton Ferdinand from Sunderland.

The 26-year-old is currently undergoing a medical and discussing personal terms with the Hoops ahead of tonight’s transfer deadline.

Ferdinand, the younger brother of Manchester United and England centre-back Rio, moved to the Black Cats for £8million three years ago from West Ham.

But Sunderland will allow his to leave for as little as £1million because he has only 12 months remaining on his contract and with no new deal on the table, manager Steve Bruce wants him gone.

The two fell out last season, and Bruce bought 10 players this summer, including defenders Wes Brown and John O’Shea, so is not short of cover.

The Black Cats boss also wants to free up cash in order to buy a striker of his own.

Ferdinand will become QPR’s fourth major signing since Tony Fernandes took over the club earlier this month.

Joey Barton, Luke Young and Armand Traore have all signed for the Hoops boss Neil Warnock, who was given the green light by the Malaysian businessman to spend.
