Hogan Ephraim accepts that his QPR career is all but over, and is desperate to seal a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Midfielder Ephraim trained with the League One side earlier this month, but Wolves manager Kenny Jackett decided against signing the 25-year-old.

However, it is understood that Jackett may still elect to take Ephraim to Molineux on loan, and the player said he is hopeful of a deal being reached.

“I went up there for a couple of days, spoke to the manager and it went well. It could happen,” said Ephraim, who helped QPR win the Championship in 2010-11.

“It was a move I was hoping would happen before but for whatever reason it didn’t go ahead in time.

“I’m waiting to hear whether it’ll still happen and I’d be really pleased if it does.

“I’m 25 and just want to play. To go to a club like Wolves and play for a manager who trusts me appeals to me a lot.”

Ephraim has made 68 appearances for QPR, but has found himself frozen out of the squad under current manager Harry Redknapp and his predecessor Mark Hughes.

He has not featured for the Rs since a substitute appearance in a 2-2 draw with Aston Villa in February 2012, and has had loan spells at Leeds, Charlton, Bristol City and Toronto.

“It’s just really disappointing not to be involved,” he said. “I have a lot of feelings for QPR but, let’s be honest, I’m coming towards the end of my time there.

“My contract is up at the end of the season and I want to play as much as possible. It’s been a really frustrating time for me.

“If something happens with Wolves I’d be delighted. If not then it’ll be time to explore other options. Either way it’s clear I’m not part of the plan at QPR.”
