However, after having a productive first campaign in English football this season, the 27-year-old’s opinion has now changed.
Chery now sees his long-term future at QPR, and he is determined to help the London club make it into the Premier League.
“When I first came here I thought to myself I will be here for two years and then take the next step, but I think it will be different this time,” Chery said.
“I want to play for QPR in the Premier League and hopefully by my third year here I can do it – that is my aim.”
Chery has impressed during his maiden campaign with Rangers, with his skill in possession making him a fans favourite at Loftus Road.
However, it is only recently that the Dutch attacking midfielder has started to show his true potential.
Chery has been handed a key role as Rangers’ main creator by Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and he has thrived with the responsibility.
The former Groningen man has scored four goals in his last seven appearances, which has helped QPR put together their best run of results for the entirety of the campaign.
QPR are now in 11th place in the Championship table, with their next match coming against Middlesbrough tomorrow.
