Esteban Granero says that he joined Queens Park Rangers in the summer as he felt the time was right to move to the Premier League.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Esteban Granero has said that he always wanted to play in the Premier League.

The 25-year-old joined QPR from Real Madrid on a four-year contract in the summer.

"I have wanted to play in England since I was a child," the Spaniard told The Telegraph. "Football was born here and they feel this sport in a way that they don't feel anywhere else.

"Not in Spain. In Spain football is great, they have good players but the sport is not the same as here in England. I would talk to my family and say 'one day I will play in England.

"I don't know when - maybe when I am 20, maybe 25, maybe 30. Maybe for the best team in England, maybe for a team in the second division. I don't know but someday I will play there'. And, this summer, I felt it was the right time to come here and test myself. I was plenty sure of that."

QPR will host Everton at Loftus Road in the Premier League on Sunday.
