Permit problems halt Henrique deal


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.
