QPR deny Brazilian Sandro has been deported

By Jenny Kirkham

Premier League club Queens Park Rangers have denied that midfielder Sandro has been deported from the country over work permit issues.

The Sun newspaper claimed that the 26-year old was kicked out of the UK after playing for the relegated Barclays Premier League side without the necessary paperwork all season.

However, QPR dispute the suggestion that Sandro who moved to Loftus Road from Spurs last summer, has been deported.

The club said in a statement: "The club is aware of today's story in The Sun newspaper regarding Sandro and the Home Office. Whilst the club is in dialogue with the Home Office in a bid to resolve the matter, it is not in a position to comment further at this time.

"The club can clarify that Sandro is currently on holiday in Brazil - but wasn't deported as suggested in the article.
