Queens Park Rangers have completed the signing of striker Loic Remy from Marseille for an undisclosed fee.
The France international has penned a four-and-a-half year deal with the Premier League strugglers.
He said: "Harry played a big part in me coming here. I spoke to him and [owner] Tony Fernandes at length and they made it clear they wanted me here. They gave me the right motivation to join QPR.
"I want to develop my game here. This season the objective is to stay up but beyond that we have greater objectives.
"After seven years in France, this is the right time for me to pursue a new challenge in the Premier League - the best League in the world.
"I am confident I can adapt to the Premier League. My main characteristics have taken me to the level I am at today but I am keen to keep improving in the Premier League."
