Tom Heaton has expressed his desire to leave Manchester United in January with QPR his preferred destination.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper has recently returned to Old Trafford following a three-month loan spell with Jim Magilton's side.
Despite making just two Carling Cup appearances at Loftus Road Heaton is determined to engineer a permanent move back to London in the winter transfer window.
Magilton has already expressed an interest to move for the shot-stopper after being impressed with his performances and attitude during his short stay.
"In an ideal world, I would have stayed down at QPR until January, but there's no loophole in the agreement," Heaton told the Manchester Evening News.
"It was a three-month loan and now we can't do anything until the New Year.
"My contract at United is up in the summer, from a personal point of view it's time to move on and start afresh, so I'm hoping to secure a permanent move in January.
"If there's a chance of that being to QPR, I'd certainly be very, very interested.
"I've had a couple of conversations with the manager and he's been happy with what I've done since I've been there.
"The manager impressed me an awful lot as well and the club appear to be moving in the right direction. Every player wants to play in the Premier League and I'm no different."
