QPR have denied midfielder Sandro has been deported from the country over work permit issues and is in fact on holiday.

A national newspaper report claimed the Brazilian was kicked out of the UK after playing for the relegated Barclays Premier League side without the necessary paperwork all season.

However, QPR dispute the suggestion the 26-year-old, who moved to Loftus Road from Spurs last summer, has been deported.

"The club is aware of today's story in The Sun newspaper regarding Sandro and the Home Office," said a statement.

"Whilst the club is in dialogue with the Home Office in a bid to resolve the matter, it is not in a position to comment further at this time.

"However, the club can clarify that Sandro is currently on holiday in Brazil - but wasn't deported as suggested in the article.

"The club will be making no further comment."
