Ephraim returns to QPR after Toronto FC loan ends

The 25-year-old midfielder heads back to his London club after 12 appearances for TFC.
TORONTO -- Hogan Ephraim's loan spell with Toronto FC has ended, with the MLS side announcing that the midfielder was placed on waivers on Tuesday ahead of his move back to English club Queens Park Rangers.

The 25-year-old Ephraim made 12 appearances in all competitions for TFC, and he is already back in England after being recalled by QPR.

"Been told that QPR want me to end the loan now so I can be refreshed for pre season," Ephraim tweeted on Saturday. "I just want to say a massive thank you to everybody [a]t Toronto FC for making it a great stay for me - they are the eat [sic] bunch of guys I've had the pleasure of playing alongside. The fans and [m]anagement team have been great to me and all the support staff at the club. I wish the club the best of luck and believe the results will [c]hange real soon!!"

"I will miss this place, but now my intentions are to show QPR how much I wanna be at QPR and how well I wanna do for them."

Ephraim wrote Sunday that he was boarding a London-bound plane. QPR was relegated from the English Premier League last month and will play in the second-tier League Championship for the 2013-14 season.
