Experience: Damiano Tommasi, pictured in 2001, has signed for QPR

'The signing of Damiano adds great experience to the squad,' QPR manager Iain Dowie told www.qpr.co.uk.  

'He has played at the highest level for club and country, and to have a player of that calibre available can only be good for QPR.  

'We've got some fantastic young talent in the squad and training with someone of Damiano's stature will be of huge benefit to them, I'm sure. In the short term, he could prove to be very useful to us.'

Tommasi made more than 250 appearances in 10 years with Roma, winning the Italian championship in 2001.  

He was capped 25 times by Italy and played in all four of the Azzurri's matches in the 2002 World Cup.
