Report: West Brom agree Sandro deal; set for medical today

West Brom are closing in on a deal for QPR midfielder Sandro.

West Brom are set to confirm the signing of QPR midfielder Sandro, Sky Sports report.

The Brazilian midfielder, capped 18 times by his country, was the subject of an offer by the Baggies yesterday.

QPR have accepted the approach, and Sandro is heading to the Hawthorns today to undergo a medical before completing his move to the Midlands side.

The deal is reportedly set to be a loan exchange until the end of the season, with the Baggies having the option to sign him permanently at the end of the campaign.

Still just 26-years-old, Sandro is well known in English football for his spell with Tottenham Hotspur, having moved to the North London club in 2010.

He played 106 times for Spurs, before leaving in 2014 to join Harry Redknapp at QPR. His time in West London has been more troublesome, and Sandro has managed just 11 appearances this season.

A holding midfielder, he is renowned for his powerful style of play and his never-say-die attitude, and on paper he is a logical signing for a team led by Tony Pulis.

The Baggies want the deal completed before midday today to ensure Sandro is eligible for their FA Cup fourth round tie v Peterborough tomorrow.
