Rangers are closing in on a deal to take Liverpool winger Ryan Kent back to Ibrox on a permanent transfer.
The 22-year-old had an impressive spell under former Reds captain Steven Gerrard last season but has spent the summer in limbo as the Scottish side refused to meet Liverpool’s asking price and the Merseysiders unwilling to sanction another loan.
However, Rangers appear to have finally come up with a bid which meets the player’s valuation and the PA news agency understands Kent is edging closer to his move to Ibrox with a £6m-£7million deal potentially going through today.
Gerrard had claimed on Sunday that any incoming transfer would have to come “out of the blue”.
The Gers boss is hoping to get more players out on loan before midnight after Jake Hastie joined Rotherham on a season-long deal.
The 20-year-old has made two first-team appearances since joining Rangers this summer from Motherwell under freedom of contract.
The likes of Graham Dorrans, Jason Holt, Eros Grezda, Joe Dodoo and the fit-again Jamie Murphy are also out of the first-team picture.
