FA investigate coin-throwing at Stoke and QPR

The Football Association has launched a fresh investigation into coin-throwing after alleged incidents at both Stoke and QPR on Saturday.

An FA spokesman told Press Association Sport on Sunday that the governing body was "aware and investigating" after reports from the Britannia Stadium and Loftus Road.

An object was allegedly thrown at Stoke keeper Jack Butland during his side's 2-1 Premier League victory over Aston Villa, while QPR players celebrating Junior Hoilett's penalty during their 2-0 Sky Bet Championship win over Birmingham were apparently targetted from the stand housing visiting supporters.

Rangers launched their own investigation immediately after the game, and the visitors promised stern action against anyone found responsible.

West Brom have agreed a loan fee with QPR that would see Sandro move to the Hawthorns until the summer.

The Brazilian midfielder has been plagued by injuries since leaving Spurs for the Super Hoops in September 2014.

He is expected to undergo a medical in the West Midlands today and could be available for West Brom's Premier League fixture against Swansea on February 2nd.

QPR have completed the signing of striker Conor Washington from Peterborough United, for an undisclosed fee believed to be around £2.5m.

The news comes just three days after they confirmed the departure of top goalscorer Charlie Austin, who has joined Premier League Southampton for £4m.

Washington, 23, has already scored 15 goals in 31 appearances for Posh in all competitions this season, including ten in League One.

He will go straight into Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's squad for Saturday's Championship fixture against Wolves at Loftus Road.

Speaking to QPR's official website, the former non-league man said:

I feel I've improved as a player over the last 18 months. My mentality has changed and I'm a better player for it. But I also feel there's a lot more to come from me and I believe I can properly go on to fulfil my potential at QPR.

I know I've still got a long way to go in my development but I'm relishing the chance to prove my worth. I've proved I can do it at every level I've played at so far, so I don't see any reason why I can't do it here with QPR. I can’t wait to pull on the QPR shirt and show the fans what I’m capable of.

Liverpool trying to rush through Caulker deal so he can play against Arsenal

Liverpool are racing to push through Steven Caulker's loan move in time for him to be available for Wednesday's visit of Arsenal.

Press Association Sport understands the QPR centre-back, who has been on loan at Southampton, has returned to Loftus Road to thrash out a short-term deal - subject to a medical - for him to move to Anfield.

Reds officials are trying to complete the paperwork before the midday deadline in order to register the 24-year-old so he is eligible to go straight into the squad should he be required.

Any medical would then have to be done on Merseyside and with the players training late this afternoon there is even the possibility Caulker could link up with his new team-mates at Melwood today.

Caulker has made just eight appearances for Southampton - the last of which came against Liverpool in last month's 6-1 Capital One Cup quarter-final defeat - but only one of those has been a Premier League start back in August.
