West Brom and QPR fans react on Twitter to Sandro’s loan switch

West Brom - The Hawthorns

Sandro has joined West Bromwich Albion on loan from Queens Park Rangers.

As confirmed by the club’s official website, West Bromwich Albion have agreed a deal with Queens Park Rangers to take midfielder Sandro on a six-month loan deal.

The Brazil international joined the Hoops from Tottenham Hotspur in 2014, making his debut for the West London side against Manchester United only a matter of days afterwards.

He joined with the ambition of helping QPR preserve their Premier League status, yet on the contrary a disappointing campaign ensued and they were relegated long before the final day of the campaign.

QPR’s bid to make an immediate return hasn’t gone as planned, prompting the club to seek cost-cutting measures starting with the sale of top scorer Charlie Austin to Southampton this month.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side are seemingly keen to offload more, and Sandro was one of those likely to leave with the midfielder’s expected high earnings a real problem while in the Championship.

West Brom have picked up his tab, bringing him in on a six-month loan with a potential option of making his stay with the Baggies permanent come the end of the season.

Tony Pulis’s side have been very cautious on the transfer front this month, preferring to seek loan deals rather than perhaps paying over the odds in what many describe as an inflated market.

Sandro, a holding midfielder, will offer West Brom options in the middle of the park and his physical strengths and ability to offer defensive protection to his back four are desired attributes.

Writing on Twitter upon his confirmation, both sets of supporters ultimately seem satisfied by the deal.
