Former Real Madrid midfielder Esteban Granero maintains he is going nowhere in the winter transfer window.

Granero joined Queens Park Rangers before the start of this season, yet despite heavy investment from owner Tony Fernandes the Londoners  have failed to win a game this season and sit bottom of the Premier League.

Nonetheless, the 25-year-old insists he is not aiming to leave and says he is happy in England despite recent rumours of a return to Spain with Real Betis.

“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,” he told the club’s official website.

“Am I happy here? Yes, more than ever. I came here for a challenge and this is what I have.

“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.”
