QPR have completed the £10m signing of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Sandro on a three-year deal - but have missed out on Liverpool striker Fabio Borini.
The Brazilian midfielder has fallen out of favour at Spurs since clashing with former manager Tim Sherwood and has been unable to force his way back into current boss Mauricio Pochettino's plans.
The 25-year-old was initially taken to Spurs by QPR boss Harry Redknapp in 2010 and made 81 appearances for the White Hart Lane club.
But after seemingly becoming second choice for Pochettino, Redknapp has been working to take the midfielder to Loftus Road.
Speaking outside the Hoops' ground hours before the transfer window shit, chairman Tony Fernandes told Sky Sports that Sandro was a player the club wanted to bring in.
Fabio Borini, however, will not be joining Rangers after his proposed £10m move from Liverpool fell through.
The 23-year-old Italian had been a target of Sunderland but decided against a move to the Stadium of Light and returned to Liverpool. QPR then registered an interest only for the deal to fall flat.
Explaining why the move didn't materialise, Fernandes added: "Player's expectations. agent's expectations. Some times people have to be realistic. We are not going to be unrealistic about it."
Borini now faces a campaign playing second fiddle to Daniel Sturridge and Mario Balotelli unless Brendan Rodgers can find a suitor for him in the January transfer window.
He arrived at Anfield in 2012 from Parma in one of Rodgers's first transfers as Reds manager. But the striker has failed to establish himself on Merseyside and spent last season on loan at Sunderland, where he scored seven goals.
