Tal Ben Haim is determined to keep QPR in the Premiership and intends to seize any opportunity given to him by boss Harry Redknapp. "I am ready, that is what I came for, to play to help the team, and every chance that the manager gives me I have to take it," he told Sky Sports News.

Ben Haim could get a run in the side as Ryan Nelsen looks set to leave the club to become coach of Toronto FC, and the Israeli admits his departure would be a big blow.

"He is a leader, a very good player and everyone loved him at the club and hoped he would stay," said Ben Haim.

"Every game I went to watch I saw him give everything for the club, and we need players like him."
