HOGAN Ephraim has set his sights on making QPR's 25-man Premier League squad next campaign.

The winger made just three appearances for Rangers last season, spending spells out on loan at Charlton Athletic and Bristol City.

Ephraim was left out of the 25 by former boss Neil Warnock and was left disappointed again after failing to make the cut under Mark Hughes in January.

However, the 24-year-old was surprisingly handed a new contract by the Welshman before ending the campaign at Ashton Gate.

And Ephraim insists he's desperate to make it third time lucky as he bids to prove himself in the top flight.

He said: “My aim is to make the 25-man squad this time.

“It was a great season for the club, capped by clinching survival on the final day at Man City.

“I want to play my part and believe I can perform well during pre-season and force my way in.

“I know it's up to me to prove it. I've got to make sure I'm looking sharp and take any chances that come my way.

"The gaffer's shown faith in me by giving me a new contract now I want to try and repay him."
