Championship side QPR have signed Watford defender Gabriele Angella on a season-long loan.

The ex-Italy Under-21 international, 26, has been at Watford for two years and played 36 times in their promotion-winning campaign last season.

"I want to help the club this season and do my best here - this is a new page in the book of my career," he told the QPR website.

"I just want to play and improve and show the fans what I can do."

QPR head coach Chris Ramsey added: "We've got decent competition now in the back four and Gabriele's experience, especially at a level where he was promoted with Watford last season, will be a big positive for us."
