Sandro to leave Queens Park Rangers to join Antalyaspor on free transfer

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Sandro is to sign for Antalyaspor on a three-and-a-half year contract, the Turkish Super Lig club have announced.

Sandro, 27, moved to QPR from Tottenham Hotspur in September 2014 on a three-year deal, but struggled with injuries and spent the second half of last season on loan to West Bromwich Albion.

In a statement on their official website Antalyaspor president Ali Safak Ozturk said the Brazilian had joined them on a free transfer, though QPR later insisted the paperwork is still to be completed.

Antalyaspor, ninth in the Turkish Super Lig, are captained by former Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto'o.
