Striker Charlie Kelman is back on loan with Gillingham - three months after his sudden exit.
Kelman was sent back to QPR by former boss Steve Evans just days after being substituted at half-time in a Football League Trophy tie against West Ham under-21s.
Evans’ assistant, Paul Raynor, criticised Kelman’s contribution after the game and he was back at Loftus Road by the weekend.
He went on to score a hat-trick in his first game back with the R's, a Development League match against Ipswich.
Evans was asked about a possible return for Kelman during the Gills' injury crisis but ruled it out.
However, with Evans leaving Priestfield, caretaker boss Steve Lovell has taken the chance to bring the 20-year-old striker back for the rest of the season.
Kelman, who made eight appearances in his first spell, could feature in the home game against Burton Albion on Saturday.
He's the second new arrival today following the capture of goalkeeper Pontus Dahlberg on loan from Watford.
He replaces Jamie Cumming, who was recalled by Chelsea and promptly loaned out to MK Dons.
