Ephraim to link up with Nelsen at Toronto

Toronto FC have completed the loan signing of Hogan Ephraim from QPR.

The move, which is subject to international clearance, will see the 24-year-old spend the rest of the season playing under Ryan Nelsen, who recently left Loftus Road to take over as manager of the MLS outfit.

Paulo Sousa, who managed Ephraim at Rangers, recently agreed to take over at the New York Red Bulls and was keen for him to join him in the States, but the Portuguese has had problems obtaining a visa.

Ephraim has not made a single first-team appearance this season and has only played twice in the Premier League for QPR since they were promoted in 2011.

“Promotion was a great moment but to be honest I haven’t had many good moments since,” Ephraim told West London Sport earlier this month.

“I just want to go somewhere, play some games and get a smile back on my face.

“I’m a London boy and playing here is great. But whether it’s in London or not, or even abroad, I just want to play and move my career forward.”
