Queens Park Rangers boss Jim Magilton has displayed his delight at the capture of Tottenham midfielder Adel Taarabt.
The 20-year-old Moroccan international returns to Loftus Road for a second spell after a brief period at Loftus Road towards the back end of last season, and Magilton is all too aware of his talent.
Speaking to QPR.co.uk Magilton indicated that this capture displayed the positive ambition of the R`s this campaign.
'I've seen Adel plenty of times and I know he's a player of undoubted ability,' he said.
'He's a match winner on his day and will bring added competition to the squad.
'The fact we have been able to agree a deal to bring in someone of Adel's quality shows the sort of direction this Club is heading in.
'If you can encourage a squad player from the Premier League to take the drop down to the Championship, then it shows what your intentions are.'
The attacking midfielder impressed in his short spell with QPR last time out scoring a solitary goal against Bristol City in a 2-1 win, and Magilton believes that signing Taarabt will give Rangers a different attacking threat.
'He will benefit from playing regularly and, given a run in the side, I am sure he will give us another dimension.
'Make no mistake, we are all very ambitious here - none more so than the players - and Adel's arrival will bring vital competition for places which is needed for any squad that has ambitions to challenge.'
The midfielder will put pen to paper on a season-long loan deal tomorrow after agreeing terms in principle with the R`s.
