Sandro's cryptic tweet hints at Queens Park Rangers exit

The former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder has been linked with a loan move away from Loftus Road this summer.

A possible loan move back to Brazil for Sandro was reported several days ago, as per GloboEsporte, and a move to Santos may now be close to completion.

The Brazilian has found himself in limbo over administration issues after the Home Office declared he did not have a work permit last season and ordered Queens Park Rangers to stop selecting him.

The 26-year old returned to Brazil on holiday and is unable to play until he receives a working visa. The R's sponsor licence has been suspended, however, pending a Home Office investigation, so his wait could be a long one,

A compromise now appears to have been considered, with Sandro being allowed to return to his homeland on loan, enabling him to play football next season.

His latest tweet - a reply to former Tottenham Hotspur colleague Gareth Bale - was slightly cryptic in nature, but one which suggests a development in his situation should be arriving imminently.

The reported loan deal is said to include an option to buy and if true, would represent a strange move for the Brazil International.

At 26-years old, Sandro still has plenty to offer European football and at the peak of his Spurs career - a club he spent four years with, making close to 100 appearances - was one of the most commanding midfielders in the game.

His injury woes have always prevented a full successful campaign, however, and a stint back in his homeland may be just what the doctor ordered, as he looks to get his career back on track.
