Harry Redknapp has moved to snap up the experienced centre half on a short term deal to hopefully win a more permanent contract in January.
Onyewu is no stranger to English football having been on loan at Newcastle in 2007 from Standard Liege.
He has been training with QPR since leaving Sporting Lisbon last season and the American International has played for some of the most recognised sides in Europe like Milan, Liege and Malaga.
Oguchi Onyewu: ‘’I’m thrilled to get this period over with and finally secure my future.
‘’QPR are a club with huge ambitions to retrun to the Premier League and I wanted to be a part of it’’
He has 68 International caps.
