"I am much more comfortable in England than in Qatar," he told Sky Sports.
"Besides that, English football is much rougher, I like this very much. Football is played here and all the grounds are great. I hope I can stay for a long time in England.
"My idea is not to return to Qatar. I want to play in a good league and this is one of the best. I hope that Birmingham extends my loan or buys my transfer. I am fine at Birmingham, the city is very nice."
