QPR sign Raniere from Tottenham on a three-year contract. The Brazilian midfielder has 17 caps and has made 106 appearances for his former club. Redknapp:
Sandro’s a proper footballer and a top-class professional, he’s an absolutely fantastic signing for us, I couldn’t be more pleased. He’s been a massive target of mine all summer and I honestly didn’t think we’d be able to pull it off. It’s a real statement from the club, from the owners, to bring in a player of his undoubted ability. He brings energy, aggression, power and quality.
