Premier League - Ferdinand leaves QPR for Bursaspor loan

QPR defender Anton Ferdinand has joined Turkish side Bursaspor on loan until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old joined the west Londoners from Sunderland in 2011 but, after impressing last season, has struggled for form this term.

Ferdinand has found himself on the periphery of the first team as a result and now looks set for a move away from Loftus Road.

Bursaspor already have England international goalkeeper Scott Carson in their ranks, and signed Stoke midfielder Maurice Edu on loan earlier this month.
