"His creativity is something I think we'll really feel the benefits of. He's got a wand of a left foot. He can play in three or four positions too, which is really beneficial for us.
"I think he's a leader on the pitch too because of the way he always wants the ball, and I think QPR fans will love him for that, because he will wear the shirt with pride.
"For me, he ticks all the boxes in terms of what I want. He'll give QPR absolutely everything."
Freeman will wear the number 2 shirt at QPR and could make his debut at Newcastle on Wednesday night.
"I'm really pleased to be here and to get the deal sorted in this window," he said.
"I feel there's great potential for me to improve here as a player and kick on from what I've achieved in recent years with Bristol City.
"I'm hungry, enthusiastic and determined to keep improving. I can't wait to get going for QPR now.
"The manager and Les [Ferdinand, Director of Football] really sold the club to me and what they want to do here over the coming years.
"When two men who have played for the club speak to you about what they want to achieve in the future, you can't help but listen, and their passion for QPR really shone through.
"As a new player coming into a new club, that's fantastic to hear."
