Adel Taarabt has signalled his intention to move from Tottenham Hotspur, and make his dream move to closer to home.

The loan forward has been in sparkling form this season while on loan at Queens Park Rangers and has confounded his critics on numerous occasions.

The young Moroccan has signalled his intention to stay in West London for the time being, ahead of what he cites as a 'perfect move' to France or Italy.

Taarabt told the Ealing Gazette that he wants to leave Tottenham despite being offered a new deal, and is happy to remain at QPR for the moment.

'I want to have a good season here and then afterwards head off to a Spanish or Italian club,' he said.

'It would be nearer to Morocco and Marseilles, where I grew up, and that would be perfect for me.

'Right now, things are going very well. I am very pleased and I hope it continues, and that I can have a good season. I'm pleased to be here to show what I'm capable of.

'Tottenham would like me to sign a new deal with them but, frankly, I don't fancy going back there now. I've got two and a half years left with them, but I hope to leave soon.'

Adel has scored four goals for Rangers this season including a wonder-strike against Preston North End that should become a candidate for goal of the season.

He spoke of a great understanding with former Spurs colleague Wayne Routledge in the build up to the Sheffield Wednesday clash this weekend.

Taarabt stated that Rangers would be looking for a 'big result' when they head to Hillsborough this weekend, looking for their first win since their glorious promotion in 2004.

As a Spurs fan I would be sorry to see him leave Spurs, the lad is without doubt a very good footballer. I have seen bits of him playing for QPR and he has scored some good goals, but I do not think he has what it takes to "cut it" in the Premier League, so maybe Spain or Italy is best for him, where he will more time on the ball.

If he really really wants to go then there in point keeping him but i for one will be bloody furious because once again we have let a great talent go. It will also happen with Gio it happened with Boetang and Bent.

agreed johna, but bringing him back would certainly mean playing him and would the fans have the patience to give him time for what would very likely be a hit and miss start?

Just to add to that I am a football fan who favours being entertained over winning trophies, so the idea of us having players like Adel in the side is fantasy football to me, if we get battered a few times so be it. as long as we maintain our prem status and play great football that is fine for me.

The bloke is pure marmite - he is brilliant when he brings his fellow team-mates into play, but his problem is that he is completely unorthodox, no-one can read what he's about to do! I'm not sure he knows to be perfectly honest. Seems he's quite happy to slum it with us for the time being given his comments...

to grabby! as boxer says^^^, he needs to learn to bring others into play and to look up every now and then. IMHO he cannot cut it in the EPL, to much "show" and no "go"! but in spain he would do well for a mid-table team.

The difference is that I think he probably can cut it in the Premier League with a few tweaks to his game. Knowing when and where to distribute, when to go alone etc etc - The season with us will tell whether he has learned from his errors. I think he'll move on a better player.
