Ravel Morrison's enviable talent will grace the Championship, instead of the Premier League, now he has stepped down a division to join QPR's promotion push on a 93-day emergency loan.

The West Ham United attacking midfielder has not played since 21 January, and his switch comes following the disillusioned Morrison's refusal to join agent Mark Curtis, whose clientele includes Hammers boss Sam Allardyce and seven of his players. Curtis told the Guardian it is "nonsense", and added there is no suggestion of any wrongdoing.

"I just want to help QPR get to the Premier League - that's my only objective during my time here," said the England Under-21 international in a statement released by QPR.

"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.

Regarded as the best Manchester United youth graduate since Paul Scholes, Morrison, 21, made just three senior appearances for the Red Devils, all in the League Cup, amid controversy.

He moved to West Ham in January 2012 in a £650,000 deal and has made 22 appearances for the Hammers, scoring five goals.

Fulham had a £4 million bid rejected for Morrison last month.
