Charlton have confirmed the capture of QPR striker Rob Hulse on a three-month loan deal.

Rob Hulse: Charlton loan move

The 32-year-old moves across London after finding opportunities limited under Hoops boss Mark Hughes at Loftus Road.

The former Derby and Leeds frontman, who will stay at the Valley until January 1 under the terms of the deal, could make his Addicks debut when they host Watford in the npower Championship on Tuesday evening.

Charlton boss Chris Powell moved for Hulse as he looked to add valuable experience to his frontline after Yann Kermorgant was ruled out for around three months with an ankle injury.

"I'm really pleased to have Rob on board and look forward to working with him," Powell told CAFC Player.

"With the squad we have we do have one or two players that have played at this level before and a couple have played Premier League, but you do need to have that Championship know-how week in, week out and Rob will give us that.

"He's done well at this level before and I think he will show people that he's a good player.

"We know that he comes here with maybe a point to prove to people."

Hulse joined QPR from Derby in August 2010 and helped the Hoops win promotion to the Premier League in his first season.

But he has barely featured since, making just three appearances in the past 18 months.

"My career has been a bit stop-start for the past year and I'm looking forward to getting it back on track now with Charlton Athletic," said Hulse.

"I've met Chris Powell a couple of times and look forward to working with him.

"He's an up-and-coming manager who I've heard lots of good things about, so it's nice to be here."
