QPR have failed in their attempt to sign Brazilian striker Henrique after he was denied a work permit.
The Brazil Under-20 international looked set for a move to Loftus Road in the wake of Mark Hughes' appointment as the club's new manager. Although QPR had reached agreement with Sao Paulo over a deal, it hinged on the 20-year-old being given the go-ahead to play in England.
A work permit hearing was held on Monday when it was determined Henrique did not satisfy the required criteria.
