Sunderland midfielder Liam Miller has completed his move to Queens Park Rangers on loan for the rest of he season.
Miller has only signed until the end of this season, but it is nevertheless a permanent deal for a nominal fee. Sunderland were keen to shift his £16k a week wage from their pay roll and QPR made their move after the player was recommended by Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni. Miller has 19 caps for his country.
Miller told the club’s official website: "It's a great move for me. The Club is definitely heading in the right direction and when you look around the squad you can see the quality that is on offer. The Manager has great ideas about where he wants to take us. The play-off's are our aim and there's no reason why we can't achieve our objectives."
QPR manager Paulo Sousa said: "Liam is an international midfielder and will give us great options in that area of the pitch. He is an energetic, box-to-box player who will complement the already positive options we have in the midfield department."
Miller shot to fame as a youngster at Celtic and earned an early move to Man Utd however he has never fulfilled his potential and fell foul of Roy Keane at Sunderland, a player he had once been compared to, for poor time keeping after moving to the Stadium of Light.
Miller is set to make his QPR debut at Derby on Saturday, the same ground where he made his first ever appearance for Sunderland.
