Brazilian midfielder Sandro is set to join West Bromwich Albion on loan until the end of the season. The 26-year-old star is on the cusp of moving to The Hawthorns from current club Queens Park Rangers after West Brom boss Tony Pulis sought the advice of Sandro's former manager, Harry Redknapp.
Pulis is keen to bring Sandro in to cover injuries to the likes of James Morrison and Callum McManaman. The Welsh gaffer confirmed he had spoken to Redknapp – who signed the player during his times in charge of both Tottenham Hotspur and QPR – about the potential move.
"It's not been done. He's a player we would like to bring in if we can. Sandro has got very good experience," Pulis explained, according to the BBC.
Sandro has made 11 appearances for the West London club so far this season. However, the Baggies-bound midfielder has not played since being involved in a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield on 28 December.
"I've spoken to Harry about him and one or two other people," Pulis confirmed. "Technically, he is an excellent player. He's lost his way a little bit at QPR over the past year or two but there is no question over his ability."
Sandro joined QPR in 2014. Prior to that, the Brazilian international had enjoyed a four-year spell at Tottenham Hotspur.
