Rio Ferdinand is in training with Queens Park Rangers following confirmation of a one-year deal yesterday.

Rio Ferdinand joined his new Queens Park Rangers teammates in training after completing his move to Loftus Road.

Ferdinand joined the West London club on a free transfer, despite having other lucrative offers on the table.

The 35-year-old was put through his paces at QPR's Harlington training ground after signing the one-year deal. He will play under manager Harry Redknapp, who handed him his debut for West Ham in 1995.

Ferdinand took part in the light session, easing himself back into football after spending the summer working with the BBC as a pundit.

The QPR players returned to the club for pre-season training on Monday to prepare for the Premier League season. 

Harry Redknapp has since revealed that Ferdinand would still be at Old Trafford were Ryan Giggs in charge now.  But having reunited with his former West Ham United manager, Ferdinand will be hoping he can show what he can do for his new club on a consistent basis for the duration of his contract.
