West Ham midfielder Hogan Ephraim has agreed to extend his loan period at Championship side QPR until October 8.

The 19-year-old initially agreed a one-month loan deal with Rangers, but boss John Gregory has persuaded his parent club to allow the starlet to remain at Loftus Road for a further month.

"Hogan is a quality player," Gregory told the club's official website.

"He's very versatile and has a good footballing brain for one so young.

"He's come in at a hugely difficult time for everyone connected to the club, but I'm sure we'll get to see the very best of him over the next month."
