Mauricio Isla joins QPR on loan

Mauricio Isla will join Queens Park Rangers on loan from Juventus this season.

Juventus defender Mauricio Isla has joined QPR on a season-long loan deal.

The 26-year-old Chilean has received a work permit/governing body endorsement from the Football Association and is currently back in Italy to obtain his working visa.

"He's a top player and we're delighted to have him here," R's boss Harry Redknapp told the club's official site. "He showed his quality in the World Cup for Chile and it's a great loan signing for us.

"He's a versatile player, he's full of energy. I'm confident he'll be a really big asset for us this season."

Isla, who has made 51 appearances for his country, added: "I am very happy to be here -- this is the start of an exciting new adventure for me.

"Everybody knows that the Premier League is the greatest league in the world and the QPR proposal is very interesting and one I am very excited about.

"I hope this coming season is going to be great for both the club and myself. I will give 100 per cent in every game to help QPR in the Premier League."

Earlier on Tuesday, the 47-cap Chile defender completed his medical at Loftus Road and tweeted news of his move -- before later removing the post.

Redknapp's fourth summer signing follows just a day after QPR paid a fee believed to reach 6 million pounds to prise Jordon Mutch away from Cardiff.
