Rangers are ‘on the brink’ of completing a £1.5million to sell Cedric Itten to Swiss side Young Boys, according to a report.
The Glasgow Times claim the 25-year-old is set to sign a four-year deal with Bern-based side and bring a dismal time at Ibrox to an end.
Rangers paid almost double what they are set to recover when they paid £2.7million to sign Itten two years ago, with the striker sent out on loan to Bundesliga side Greuther Furth last summer.
Itten returned to Ibrox, scoring in the final game of the Premiership season against Hearts as a heavily-rotated Gers cruised to victory at Tynecastle.
Itten hopefully the first of a few Rangers departures this summer
Hopefully, Itten is the first of a few out the door as Gio van Bronckhorst moves on guys who, for various reasons, haven’t been able to contribute as much as hoped.
Itten and Jack Simpson are two who immediately spring to mind and getting decent fees for both will be better than having to pay them off.
There’s going to be a busy summer at Ibrox and whoever inherits the number 11 shirt next season can maybe do it a bit more justice.
Rangers need to move quickly to get business done ahead of pre-season
Rangers only have another four weeks until the players return for pre-season and getting the bulk of the transfer business done before then would be ideal.
There are a few areas of the team that van Bronckhorst and Ross Wilson will need to focus on, with defence an obvious priority.
Getting some fresh creativity into the side would be great with Rangers struggling at times to break teams down as the title slipped away.
