Peterborough United sign QPR winger Hogan Ephraim on loan

Hogan Ephraim celebrates scoring for Charlton

Peterborough United have signed Queens Park Rangers midfielder Hogan Ephraim on a one-month loan deal.

The 25-year-old has yet to feature for the Hoops this season, but has made 95 league appearances since joining them from West Ham for £800,000 in 2008.

'It was time for me to get out and play a bit of first team football," he said.

"I've played at this level with Leeds and Charlton, so I know what to expect. The team play attacking football, so I'm looking forward to it."

Ephraim last played a senior game in English football during a loan spell at Bristol City towards the end of the 2011-12 campaign, but was loaned out to Major League Soccer side Toronto in February.

The former England Under-19 international, who can play on either wing, is available for Peterborough's FA Cup tie against Exeter on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Peterborough have recalled right-back Michael Richens, 18, from his loan spell at Conference Premier club Nuneaton Town, and have released young midfielder Jevani Brown by mutual consent.
