Alejandro Faurlin explains what he noticed about Nasser El Khayati straight away

The Queens Park Rangers midfielder has been discussing his new team-mate.

Alejandro Faurlin is excited by new QPR signing Nasser El Khayati and says he noticed how good he is straight away, according to the club's official website.

Indeed, Faurlin believes the 27-year-old is a player that can't be changed - someone always looking to showcase his skill and trickery on the ball.

And he feels El Khayati has made a great start to life at QPR, hopefully breathing new energy into the west London side's stuttering season.

He told the QPR site: "Nasser is an exciting player, a very good footballer. I noticed that straight away. He is very good on the ball, he always looks to do something, and you see that against Ipswich.

"Late in the game, we were all on the bench, we were shouting, ‘Clear it, kick it out,’ and he does a nut-meg! You are not going to change that player, it is the way they are! I am happy for him, it is a great start for him at QPR."

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's first home win at Loftus Road was a big boost for the R's.

But things won't get any easier this weekend, as QPR host Fulham in a fixture that's always highly anticipated: the west London derby.

The R's will have home advantage this time around but will be smarting from their last clash against their local rivals, when Kit Symons guided Fulham to a 4-0 win over a QPR side still managed by Chris Ramsey.
