Jason Puncheon's move to Queens Park Rangers has been given the go-ahead by the Premier League.

The Southampton winger was locked in talks on deadline day and only completed his deal as the window slammed shut.

The two clubs, and the player, have been awaiting official confirmation - but Puncheon will now be moving to Loftus Road.

His agent Tony Finnigan confirmed that the move would be going ahead to skysports.com.

"The transfer is happening, the club have confirmed to us that the deal has been given Premier League approval," he said.

QPR boss Neil Warnock later revealed that the deal was complete and Puncehon would be joining them on loan initially until January.

"It just made sense to give him an opportunity to come in until January and show us what he can do," Warnock told QPR's official website.

"This all happened very late in the day so I am very pleased we got him in.

"Jason is a good acquisition because he brings pace and plenty of desire.

"To be perfectly honest, he was so keen to come to QPR I think he would have paid us!

"He is desperate to do well, and that really impressed me."
