QPR midfielder Sandro is in talks over a move to Sporting Lisbon, Sky sources understand.

The Brazil international spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom but failed to earn the offer of a permanent deal.

He made just five starts in six months at the Hawthorns and it is understood manager Tony Pulis has opted to explore other central midfielder options.

Sandro, 27, joined QPR from Tottenham in a £6m deal in the summer of 2014, with Spurs recouping all the money they paid Brazilian side Internacional to sign him.

He had played in the Champions League under former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp, and it was Redknapp who took him to Loftus Road before the Rs were relegated in 2015.
