Queens Park Rangers have confirmed that their sponsorship license for Brazilian midfielder Sandro has been reinstated


 

The Evening Standard has reported that Queens Park Rangers have confirmed that their sponsorship license for Brazilian midfielder Sandro has been reinstated with immediate effect.

The club were advised not to play the 26-year-old, who signed for the west Londoners from Tottenham last summer, in May after a problem with his residency visa was flagged up by authorities.

As a result, the Rangers midfielder was forced to sit out the final three games of last season as Chris Ramsey's side suffered relegation from the Premier League to the second tier.

However, the problem has now been resolved and Sandro will soon be free to feature for the Loftus Road outfit.

"QPR can confirm that the club's sponsorship licence has been reinstated with immediate effect," read a statement on the club's official website.

"The club has resolved the matter with the Home Office and Sandro will reapply for a new work permit once clearance has been given by the football authorities."

Sandro struggled for injury last season and made a total of just 17 top flight appearances for the Hoops, who were unable to avoid slipping back into the championship.

The midfielder's imminent return will be welcomed as the club attempt to achieve promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
