Queens Park Rangers have completed the capture of Birmingham City striker Rowan Vine for an undisclosed fee.
The former Luton Town ace, who recently spent two months on loan at Loftus Road this season, has penned a four-and-half-year deal at the club.
Blues spent £2.5million on Vine just under a year ago, however, he swiftly became surplus to requirements following their promotion to the Premier League.
Vine enjoyed his first spell with QPR and is thrilled to have made a permanent switch to the ambitious Championship outfit.
"As soon as I was informed that a permanent deal could be on the cards, I was absolutely delighted," he told the club's official website.
"I thoroughly enjoyed my loan spell here and in the first few days of the transfer window, the club have made their intentions clear, with the quality they have already brought in.
"This is clearly the place to be and when you see six or seven new players come through the door so quickly, you know the people at the very top mean business."
