Granero: I never thought about leaving QPR

The former Real Madrid midfielder has dismissed reports that he will seek a move away from the Premier League at the end of the season despite a lack of first-team chances
Estaban Granero has reaffirmed his intentions to see out his four-year contract at Queens Park Rangers, amid reports linking him with a move at the end of the season.

The 25-year-old arrived at Loftus Road last summer, as one of 10 new signings made by then manager Mark Hughes.

Since then he has made 19 appearances, but has struggled to keep his place in the starting line-up since Harry Redknapp's appointment at the west London outfit.

"I came here to spend four years here and that is still the case. I’m not the kind of player who wants to leave when things are going wrong", he told the Evening Standard.

"This team, this club, are part of me now so I can't drop them just because we're struggling. This is not the way I think."

Granero was linked with possible moves to both Serie A and La Liga during the January transfer window. He has insisted, though, that even in the face of relegation, he wishes to remain at Loftus Road.

He added: "I was able to leave in the January transfer window and I didn’t even think about it. There are always teams who are interested when the window opens, but I never thought about leaving the team".

QPR, bottom of the league, take on leaders Manchester United at Loftus Road on Saturday as they continue their battle for Premier League survival.
