Queens Park Rangers have completed the signing of Hogan Ephraim from West Ham United for an undisclosed fee.
Ephraim spent three months on loan at Loftus Road earlier this season, with the winger scoring twice in 13 Championship appearances.
The teenager has now signed a three-and-a-half year contract with QPR and is delighted to be linking up with Luigi De Canio's side again.
"I'm so pleased to be back here," Ephraim told the club's official website.
"I really enjoyed my time here on loan earlier this season and when the club showed an interest in offering me a permanent deal, I was made up.
"It's a great time to be at QPR. Big things are going to happen here - the new owners are very ambitious.
"It has been a nightmare watching the Rangers results on Soccer Saturday in the last few weeks, because I just want to be playing football.
"Things appear to be improving under the new manager and I can't wait to get started."
During his time at Upton Park, Ephraim made just one substitute appearance for the Hammers and also undertook a loan spell with Colchester United last season.
