QPR striker Djibril Cisse has joined Al Gharafa on loan until the end of the season.
The Frenchman had scored four goals in 21 appearances for the Rs in 2012-13 but is surplus to new manager Harry Redknapp's requirements following the signing of Loic Remy from Marseille.
Remy scored his first goal for his new club in Saturday's 1-1 draw with West Ham, with Jay Bothroyd and Junior Hoilett edging Cisse out for a space on the bench.
The 31-year-old links up with former Portsmouth manager Alain Perrin, who is in charge of the Qatari side.
Cisse has been a QPR player for less than a year, joining on January 31, 2012, and scored six goals for the Londoners in the second half of the season, including one in the dramatic Premier League finale against Manchester City.
