QPR complete Sandro and Niko Kranjcar signings

Harry Redknapp links up with two former players

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has reunited himself with two players he knows well as the Hoops swooped for Sandro and Niko Kranjcar on transfer deadline day.

Brazil international Sandro joins from Tottenham on a three-year deal, with Press Association Sport understanding that QPR have paid £10million for the 25-year-old.

A loan deal to take Kranjcar to Loftus Road was announced after the 11pm deadline but marks the fourth time Redknapp has signed the Croatia midfielder - who joins until the summer from parent club Dynamo Kiev.
