Queens Park Rangers have agreed a deal to sign Juventus defender Mauricio Isla on loan.

The 26-year-old, who can operate both in midfield and in defence, will finalise his move to Loftus Road once a medical is completed on Sunday, according to Juventus CEO, Giuseppe Marotta.

"We have reached a deal with QPR for Isla loan move. Tomorrow he will have medical with QPR," Marotta told reporters at a press conference.

The Chile international was a strong performer in his country's recent World Cup campaign but had failed to hold down a regular position at club level for Juventus, having joined from Serie A rivals, Udinese, in 2012.

Earlier in June, he conceded his future in Turin depended on then-manager Antonio Conte yet, despite since being replaced by Massimiliano Allegri, he has now been given the chance to move to the Premier League.

Isla follows Rio Ferdinand and Steven Caulker through the door at Loftus Road as manager Harry Redknapp prepares his club for the new season, opening the league campaign at home to Hull City on August 16.
