Rangers boss Michael Beale hailed the fourth incoming transfer of his Ibrox reign in Dujon Sterling – with reports claiming signings five and six are set to follow.

The Ibrox manager was delighted to secure a four-year deal for 23-year-old Dujon Sterling following the expiration of his contract at Chelsea.

Having worked with the defender during his time in the Chelsea youth set-up, Beale was glowing in his praise of the versatile full-back, who made two appearances for the Stamford Bridge first-team.

Beale calls Dujon Sterling a “great addition” for Rangers

“I am delighted to welcome Dujon to Rangers, he is an exciting young player who, I’m sure, will be a great addition to our squad,” Michael Beale told the official Rangers website.

“He is someone I was aware of from my time at Chelsea, and I have always kept an eye on his career as it has progressed.

“He is a very powerful and strong defender, who has fantastic attacking qualities and I look forward to working with him at Rangers.”

Sterling follows Kieran Dowell into Rangers as a pre-contract signing at Ibrox, with both players set to join up with their teammates on July 1st.

The double pre-contract signings are the third and fourth of the Michael Beale reign at Rangers, with the duo following January signings Todd Cantwell and Nicolas Raskin into the club.

Rangers certainly aren’t going to be done there either with the club’s next two signings said to be close to an announcement.

Rangers and Michael Beale eyeing up signings five and six

Michael Beale hinted that an announcement over a goalkeeper wasn’t far away. The latest reports suggest a deal between Rangers and Crystal Palace goalkeeper/Manchester United loanee Jack Butland is edging closer.

There is also Ecuadorean international midfielder Jose Cifuentes, who has been the subject of much transfer reporting surrounding Rangers heading into the window.

This move is a little bit more complicated, given that Rangers will have to pay a fee to sign the 24-year-old, but reports in the player’s homeland suggest the midfielder is set to play his final game for LAFC.

Both deals are expected to go through in the media and everything is pointing to the pair being Beale’s fifth and sixth signing as he revamps the Rangers squad.

Sterling has just spent the season on loan at Stoke, with the defender waxing lyrical about Beale’s role in bringing him to Rangers amid the reported backdrop of offers elsewhere.
