Cisse bids farewell to Lazio to join QPR


France forward Djibril Cisse has said goodbye to Lazio after agreeing a deal to join Queens Park Rangers.

The 30-year-old used the social networking site Twitter to confirm reports in the Italian press claiming the move was a done deal.

"I want to thank all the Lazio fans and everyone I've met in these months for their affection and support," he wrote in Italian.

"I'm sorry if I've been a disappointment for some people but I want to say that I've always given 100 percent."

Italian news agency Ansa had previously claimed that a five-million-euro deal to take him to the English Premier League had been agreed.

It comes just six months after he moved to Italy from Greece's Panathinaikos for 5.8 million euros.

The former Liverpool and Marseille forward initially started his Lazio career in fine form with four goals in his first month but he then went more than four months before scoring his fifth and final goal in sky blue in the Italian Cup last week.

By this point he had already lost his place in the team to Tommaso Rocchi, despite having created an excellent partnership with hot-shot Miroslav Klose earlier in the season.
