QPR announced on Wednesday that the club has secured the services of Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar.

The Brazilian makes the move to Loftus Road on a four-year contract after spending the past seven years with Inter, where he helped the club win five league titles as well as the Champions League in 2010.

"It's fantastic that we've been able to attract a keeper of such outstanding ability to the club," QPR boss Mark Hughes told his team's official website.

"When the opportunity to sign a player of his quality presents itself, you have to act quickly and we've managed to get the deal done.

"It was always my intention to bring two goalkeepers to the club this summer and now we've got fantastic competition in that department."

Cesar joins Rob Green, who was signed from West Ham, as the other new goalkeeper at the club. But Green's status as the number one is now in serious jeopardy, especially after he conceded five goals in a season-opening defeat to Swansea City.
