Queens Park Rangers has signed French striker Djibril Cisse from Lazio.

The 30-year-old former Liverpool and Marseille player has joined the Premier League strugglers on a 2- 1/2 year deal.

QPR manager Mark Hughes says Cisse is "a huge threat to opposition's defenses. He's got great pace, power and movement and that's something we will hopefully benefit from.''
