Championship QPR midfielder Sandro is having a medical at West Brom with a view to a loan move until the end of the season.
"It's not been done. He's a player we would like to bring in if we can. Sandro has got very good experience," said Baggies boss Tony Pulis.
"I've spoken to Harry (Redknapp) about him and one or two other people," added Pulis.
"Technically, he is an excellent player. He's lost his way a little bit at QPR over the past year or two but there is no question over his ability."
