Chinese Super League come calling for Championship midfielder

West London Sport understands that out of favour Queens Park Rangers midfielder Sandro could be in line for a January move to the Chinese Super League. Although the 27-year-old has appeared on the bench more recently he has still only started twice for QPR this season, both in the EFL Cup.

In fact, his last league appearance for the Loftus Road club came ten months ago in December 2015. Ideally he would like to move into the Premier League or feature for a club overseas that plays in European competition. A proposed move to Sporting Lisbon, who play in the Champions League, collapsed over the summer.

With the chance of a move to a club of this nature now appearing unlikely, this has triggering off a few light bulbs above the heads of those involved in the megabucks Chinese top flight division. His contract with the club runs out next summer, and Sandro could potentially be open to a move to Asia. The likes of Hulk, Graziano Pelle, Papiss Cisse, Demba Ba, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Paulinho and Gervinho to name a few all currently play their football in that league. Among the managers in the division include Sven Goran Eriksson, Luiz Felipe Scolari, Felix Magath and Manuel Pellegrini.

Representatives of various clubs in China have approached the Championship club to discuss the possibility of signing up Sandro in January, once the transfer window reopens. With Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink seeing Sandro as way down the pecking order and very few English and European clubs prepared to take a chance, then China could be Sandro’s best chance of playing first-team football in the coming months.
