Stephane Mbia Joins QPR

Queens Park Rangers continue to completely overhaul their squad this summer, and their most recent signing is 26-year-old Stephane M'Bia out of Marseille:

M'Bia, who normally plays in defensive midfield or at centre back, has apparently signed a two-year deal to keep him at Loftus Road through the close of the 2013/14 season. He joins the Marseille exodus, with the French club -- who are struggling for money at the moment -- also having lost Cesar Azpilicueta to Chelsea and seemingly on the verge of being divested of star striker Loic Remy on top of that.

Going the other way is... combative... midfielder Joe Barton, whose antics in the final game of last season have seen him rather unwelcome in English football. That's technically a loan deal, but you'd probably expect Barton to stay in Ligue 1 after the end of the year.
