Anton Ferdinand has set his sights on becoming a hero to Queens Park Rangers supporters after securing a late move to Loftus Road.

Ferdinand joined QPR on a three-year deal on deadline day after an undisclosed fee was agreed with Sunderland.

His cousin, Les, plied his trade for the London club and became a fans' favourite after plundering 80 goals in 163 league games between 1987 and 1995.

Anton, 26, now hopes to enjoy a successful spell of his own at QPR after being lured to the club by manager Neil Warnock.

"I haven't been in touch with Les yet but we'll speak soon. I used to come here to watch him as a kid," he said in The Sun.

"I know he was a hero here and I want to be the same. I know what this place, this club is about.

"Things seem to be buzzing around here. I spoke to the gaffer and he impressed me."
