Fabio da Silva has joined QPR on a season-long loan on the same day his brother signed a new four-year contract at United.

“I’m so happy to be here,” said Fabio. “This loan is so important for me in terms of my career. I want to play as many games as possible here. I want to play well and win games as well. It’s a good move for my career and for my confidence. Sir Alex Ferguson said that I’d enjoy it here and told me to play as many games as I can.”
