I know the boys here, I know the manager, so this was a very easy decision for me,” he said.“I went back to Brighton to do pre-season and see how things would go, but in my mind I always wanted to come back to QPR.“My pre-season went well, but it’s about playing games. It’s not about me staying at Brighton because they are in the Premier League, I want to get out and play, and enjoy my football.“I am happy to be here and hopefully I can help the team.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook See also:Ngbakoto’s goal takes QPR throughQPR stood up and were counted, says HollowayWashington tipped to be fit for Wednesday gameQPR set to re-sign LuaLua on loanQPR and Brentford to meet in Carabao CupQPR confirm LuaLua’s return on loan from BrightonSylla and Ngbakoto to miss Wednesday gamelast_img
