West Ham United have allowed striker Modibo Maiga to join Queens Park Rangers on loan until the end of the season.

The striker became the R's fifth signing on transfer deadline day after the club brought Aaron Hughes, Guilherme Dellatorre, Kevin Doyle and Will Keane in on permanent deals.

Maiga told Rangers' club website: “I am here to play games and score goals.

“I am very, very grateful to Harry Redknapp for making this deal happen and I am looking forward to playing for QPR.”
