Adel Taarabt has underlined his desire to make his move from QPR to AC Milan a permanent one.

The 24-year-old is on loan at the San Siro but Milan are keen to sign him if Championship promotion hopefuls QPR agree to sell for around £4million.

The Moroccan international arrived in January on loan from QPR after an unsuccessful spell at Fulham and has rediscovered his confidence.

'We are in negotiations so that I can stay here and I hope to stay at Milan, as with this jersey I manage to give 100 per cent,' he said.

'I never expected to score so early into my time here. We lost at Napoli, but I think I managed to show straight away who I am,' Taarabt told Milan Channel.

'With this shirt I played for the first time at San Siro and in the Champions League.

'In England I played behind the strikers, but here at Milan I have a different role and I prefer it.'
