players to have," manager Mark Hughes told the club's official website.
"He can operate right across the back and can also play the
holding role in midfield."
Bosingwa is QPR's eighth close-season signing.
"I'm really pleased to be here. I had the pick of many clubs
but the project here excites me greatly," he said.
"I played for Chelsea for four years and I love Premier
League football and the supporters. It is fantastic for me to
stay in England."
