Hargreaves trains with R's
Queens Park Rangers,
Owen Hargreaves is training with QPR following his release from Manchester City at the end of last season.
Hargreaves, who has 42 caps for England, joined the Rs squad for his first session on Saturday, the London club confirmed.
The 31-year-old moved to Manchester United from Bayern for a fee believed to be around £17million in 2007, but has been plagued by injuries over the last four seasons.
"Owen is training with the group. There is no obligation for either party," QPR boss Mark Hughes told the club's official website. "He's keen to retain his fitness and we are more than happy to help him by allowing him to train with us and use our facility at Harlington."
Hargreaves' struggles in the last few years prompted him to contemplate retirement after leaving City, but by training with QPR it seems he is determined to continue his playing career.
It appeared he had won his fitness battle when he made a goalscoring Blues debut in a Carling Cup encounter against Birmingham in September, but Hargreaves made just three more appearances for City and was not seen again after being introduced as a late substitute in the FA Cup third-round defeat to United at the Etihad Stadium in January.
