West Bromwich Albion have sealed the signing of QPR midfielder Sandro on a short-term deal, report ESPN FC.
The Brazilian enforcer moves to the Hawthorns on a deal taking him up until the end of the season, with the option of making it a permanent move in the summer.
Having been introduced to English football by Harry Redknapp while at Tottenham, the now 26-year old established himself as one of the most imposing midfielders in the Premier League while there.

He moved to Queens Park Rangers in 2014 and made 11 appearances for them this season, despite their relegation last term.
However, the Selecao international has now joined the Baggies as Tony Pulis looks to consolidate his squad in order to stave off any late fears they may be dragged into the relegation battle.
‘We’re delighted to bring a player of such quality to the club’, stated Pulis.
‘Sandro has a great pedigree and will be a good addition to our squad.’
The defensive midfielder started his career with Internacional and has been capped 17 times by the Brazilian senior team, while also representing his nation at the 2012 Olympics.
‘This is a big club and I feel happy to be here and very happy to be back in the Premier League’, gleamed Sandro upon his signing.
