Ravel Morrison has finally completed his emergency loan from West Ham to Queens Park Rangers.
The midfielder's move to Loftus Road has been in the pipeline in the pipeline for some time. But manager Harry Redknapp wanted make full use off the Fa's laws regarding emergency loans, where a club can keep a player for a maximum of 93 days.
This would allow Morrison to take place in a potential play-off final, should QPR reach that stage. Despite this, West Ham have the option to recall the midfielder after just four weeks.
Speaking to the club's official website, Morrison says he's looking forward to joining QPR's promotion push.
He said: “I just want to help QPR get to the Premier League – that’s my only objective during my time here. If we manage to do that, it would 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."
The England U-21 international started the season in scintillating form, scoring 4 goals in his first eight games, including a wonder strike against Tottenham
Yet Morrison fell out of favour with Sam Allardyce, with the West Ham boss. Redknapp however recognises his talent, and is relishing the arrival of the 21-year-old.
“Ravel is fit and ready to play and I’m hoping he can come in and make an impact,” Redknapp told QPR's website.
“He’s got fantastic ability, there’s no doubting that. He’s got great pace, can dribble and score a goal.
“If we can get the best out of him, he could make a big difference.”
Morrison's loan will take affect on Friday, and he may make his debut against Charlton on Saturday.
