"It's a very exciting league and a super-competitive league and a lot of players look forward to coming to play here in England," Vargas said. "I'm looking forward to it. My biggest characteristic is one of speed. I'm always looking towards goal. My intention is to give 100 percent and not let myself down and to work hard for the team."

Vargas is QPR's sixth signing of the summer.
