Queens Park Rangers midfielder Sandro has been told he can re-apply for his visa with the London club "once clearance has been given by the football authorities" according to BBC Sport.
26-year-old Sandro is known for his tough tackling style and he will have to tackle this situation hard to avoid missing a season with Queens Park Rangers following their relegation to the Championship.
This is completely frustrating for Sandro who only managed to make 17 appearances for QPR despite making a big money move from Tottenham Hotspur last summer. Sandro had to be left out of the crucial relegation battle because of the work permit issues that surrounded him.
QPR were trying to resolve this issue back in May but have had no luck so far. The problem does not stop at Sandro as they had their sponsorship deal revoked by the home office as they dropped to the Championship, however, they have since had it reinstated.
The worst thing about this whole work permit debacle is that Sandro himself seems to have been left out in the cold. The Brazilian tweeted just last week "Can someone let me know about my situation please!!!!!". He has also denied he had been deported from the country last month.
Sandro seems to be committed to QPR for now and willing to play in the Championship so he will want the situation resolved as soon as possible so he can make preparations for next season in a completely new league that he is used to.
