- Sao Paulo starlet Henrique looked set for a move to Loftus Road on loan, with a view to a permanent move, in the wake of Mark Hughes' appointment as the club's new manager.
- Although QPR had reached agreement with Sao Paulo over a deal, including a €6 million right-to-buy option, it hinged on the 20-year-old being given the go-ahead to play in England.
- But a work permit hearing was held on Monday when it was determined Henrique did not satisfy the required criteria.
- A QPR spokesman said: "He didn't get a work permit for various reasons.''
Among those reasons were the fact the player still has limited experience in club football, and because he has not yet made his debut for the senior Brazil team. Soccernet

Cook Returns To QPR
Posted on: Mon 23 Jan 2012

LEE COOK has returned to Queens Park Rangers following the end of his two-month loan spell with the O's.

The 29-year-old winger played nine matches in O's colours, netting the winner in the 1-0 victory at Stevenage at the start of January.

He arrived at Brisbane Road at the end of November after Dean Cox suffered a knee injury and enjoyed a successful stint in E10, also providing the assist for David Mooney's goal in a 1-1 draw against Chesterfield.

Former Fulham man Cook will now try to find a place in Mark Hughes' 25-man squad for the second half of QPR's Barclays Premier League campaign.

O's boss Russell Slade said: "Cooky missed Saturday's game with a little injury and he's now trying to force his way into the QPR squad.

"He had a great little loan spell with us so we were delighted with that."
