Paddy Kenny has revealed that the chance of a fresh start and being reunited with manager Neil Warnock persuaded him to sign for QPR.
The goalkeeper returned to action for Sheffield United back in April following a nine-month suspension for failing a drugs test, but is keen to move on and start a new chapter in his career at Loftus Road.
Kenny, who made 278 appearances for the Blades, told QPR's official website: "It was a difficult decision to leave, but with the year I've had I felt it was the right time to move on.
"The chance to come to a club like Queens Park Rangers and to link up again with Neil Warnock was too good an opportunity to turn down.
"Neil is a massive character. It's the third time now that I'll be working with him and I'm very excited about the challenge ahead."
