Ravel Morrison
Morrison hasn't played for West Ham for a month.

Ravel Morrison says an appetite for first team football motivated moving on loan to Queens Park Rangers from West Ham United having not played for a month.

Despite enjoying an impressive start to the campaign, Morrison has been marginalised from the Hammers first team of late, who have won their last three in the row without the England Under-21 international.

Morrison had been considered as an outsider for inclusion in Roy Hodgson's England squad for the World Cup finals in Brazil but his move to Championship promotion hopefuls QPR all-but ends his hopes and his departure from West Ham is another blemish on his chequered career.

"I just want to help QPR get to the Premier League – that's my only objective during my time here," Morrison told the club's official website. "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 aim here is to get the club promoted and I want to contribute in helping QPR to get there."

Rangers manager Harry Redknapp, whose side are 11 points adrift of leaders Leicester City in the Championship, added: "Ravel is fit and ready to play and I'm hoping he can come in and make an impact.

"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."

Sam Allardyce has turned around West Ham's season with three straight wins to take the club four points clear of the bottom three and on the precipice of breaking into the top half.

After joining West Ham from Manchester United, Morrison went on loan to Birmingham City, a move which assisted his career and his breakthrough at Upton Park this term.

However, the 21 year old's career has stalled again and questions will be continue to be asked about his temperament.
