WEST HAM midfielder Ravel Morrison is to step down a division from the Premier League to aid London rivals Queens Park Rangers in their push for promotion to English football’s top flight after agreeing a 93-day emergency loan spell.
Morrison’s move from east to west London will take effect formally on Friday and he could make his QPR debut against Charlton – another capital club – in a second-tier Championship match on Saturday.
QPR, bankrolled by Malaysian businessman Tony Fernandes, the man behind budget airline AirAsia and the Caterham Formula One team, are currently fourth in the Championship table and four points adrift of one of the two guaranteed automatic promotion places.
“I just want to help QPR get to the Premier League – that’s my only objective during my time here,” said England Under-21 international Morrison in a statement released by the Hoops.
“If we manage to do that, it’d be great for everybody connected with the club.
“All I want to do is play football. I just want to show everyone what I can do week in, week out.”
