Scottish champions Rangers have announced that they have agreed terms with American international Alejandro Bedoya.
The 24-year-old is currently with Swedish club Orebro – but they have shunned Rangers’ bids for the player.
However, his contract is due to expire later this year and so Rangers have now agreed a pre-contract with the midfielder – subject to a work-permit.
Rangers still hope to agree terms with Orebro that would see Bedoya move this summer, but if no agreement is reached he will switch to Glasgow in January.
Rangers director of football Gordon Smith said: “It would be to start in January but if we were to sign him now, we would have to agree a fee with his club. That’s under discussion as well.”
