LONDON(AP) Queens Park Rangers has signed midfielder Samba Diakite on loan for the rest of the season from Nancy, with the Mali international set to join the Premier League club after the African Cup of Nations.

The 23-year-old Diakite left the tournament for a medical in London on Sunday before returning to Gabon the same day.

QPR has an option to sign the player permanently at the end of the season.

QPR manager Mark Hughes says Diakite "is a good age, has got strength, power, can carry the ball and can score goals from midfield.''
