According to reports from West London Sport, Queens Park Rangers midfielder Sandro is set to leave Loftus Road for Rubin Kazan this summer.

Sandro has proved to be a big disappointment since his big money move from Tottenham Hotspur to Queens Park Rangers in the summer of 2014, and having failed to prevent the Hoops from suffering relegation the Brazilian now seems to be struggling to even get a game at Loftus Road.

Sandro made a loan move to Premier League club West Bromwich Albion during the second half of last season but the 27-year-old failed to establish himself at The Hawthorns as well.

Therefore, it comes as no surprise that West Brom do not want to sign Sandro permanently this summer and now the former Spurs star departing QPR seems all but certain.

Despite his struggles in recent times, Sandro has been attracting interest from the likes of Sporting Lisbon and now according to reports from West London Sport, the midfielder has managed to court the attention of Rubin Kazan.

The Russian side are expected to lose Yann M’Vila (Foot Mercato) during the current transfer window and the management could well view Sandro as the ideal replacement for the Frenchman.
