Morrison in 'emergency' move to QPR

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.

Morrison's 93-day emergency loan spell to QPR will take effect tomorrow and he could make his QPR debut against Charlton in a second-tier Championship match on Saturday.

QPR are currently fourth in the Championship table and four points adrift of one of the two guaranteed automatic promotion places.

Morrison, 21, rose to prominence as a youth player at Manchester United. He said he is focused on helping the Hoops gain promotion. - PA Sport.
