Granero rules out leaving QPR in the January transfer window

Spanish midfielder Esteban Granero has denied that he wants to leave Queens Park Rangers in the January transfer window.

"Am I happy here? Yes, more than ever. I came here for a challenge and this is what I have," Granero told the club's website.

"I wanted to face a big challenge with this club. It is a club with a lot of ambition and it wants to grow. I want to grow with it. Together we can move forward at the same time."

Granero joined the West Londoners from Real Madrid in the summer alongside other star players like Brazilian goalkeeper Julio César, winger Park Ji-Sung and French forward Djibril Cissé.

But despite these new arrivals and the millions of pounds invested by multimillionaire owner Tony Fernandes, the club are bottom of the Premier League and have yet to win a single game in the league so far this season.

"I am here to face this challenge. If people think I am not happy that I am here because we have not won yet, then they are wrong. We must work to get away from this situation and we are working hard for this. I am sure we will do it."

QPR face second-bottom club Southampton next Saturday at Loftus Road, and Granero believes a win against Nigel Adkins' side will be a springboard to help them win more games and climb out of the relegation zone.

"We know this is going to be massive for us," he said. "We play at home against one of our rivals. We know the supporters are with us and they deserve more than we are giving to them.

"All we can do is continue training hard and give everything on the pitch on Saturday.

"I believe the first win will change everything. We are doing the correct things and that is why I think it's going to be better for us very soon. The beginning has been a little bit tough but I am sure it is going to get better soon."
