Adel Taarabt hopes to sign permanently with AC Milan.

The QPR midfielder is on-loan to the end of the season.

He said: "I don't know why I didn't play at Fulham, but now I am at Milan where there are many important players.

"My debut went even better than I expected, but I know that I can do much more. My objective is to remain here and get Milan to take up their option on me.

"It was a special feeling to make my debut against Napoli, as I am a great admirer of Diego Maradona, so thinking that I was playing in his home stadium was exciting.

"Playing at San Siro on Friday against Bologna will also be exceptional and against Atletico Madrid even more so.

"I've never played in the Champions League, so it will be a truly unforgettable moment."
