QPR midfielder Adel Taarabt has signed a new contract with the club that ties him to Loftus Road until 2016.

Taarabt was a key member of the QPR side that gained promotion to the Premiership in 2010-11, and he tallied two goals in 28 games in the top flight for QPR last season.

"I am very pleased to have signed this new contract," Taarabt told the club's official website.

"When I first arrived here I honestly thought it would just be for a short period but I love this club and the people here have really helped me and I am very happy to be here."

The Morocco international has also seen a number of new arrivals to the club this summer, including Park Ji-Sung, Robert Green, Samba Diakite, Ryan Nelsen, Andrew Johnson and Fabio on a season-long loan.
