Rangers boss Michael Beale has dropped a hint that Harry Souttar could be joining the club on loan before the end of the transfer window.

The Gers have been constantly linked with the 24-year-old Australian international centre-back, with a deal potentially edging closer as we enter the last week of the window.

Souttar joined Leicester City for £15 million back in January but hasn’t appeared in any matchday squads so far this campaign.

New Foxes’ boss Enzo Marseca has preferred Wout Faes and Jannik Vestergaard to the Australian, opening the door for a potential loan move to Ibrox.

“A little bit of truth” – Michael Beale

Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of the trip to Ross County tomorrow, boss Beale confirmed that his side are looking to make more signings.

“I think there is a little bit in one or two of the names mentioned out there.

“There is a little bit of truth in there, but nothing for us to confirm right now.

“Come the end of the window, you may see one or two out and one in, but it’s all open at the moment.”

Rangers have already made 11 new signings this summer including the permanent deal of Todd Cantwell, with 6ft 6in centre-back Souttar potentially being the final piece in the puzzle for Beale.
