Former Rangers striker Kyle Lafferty is set for a surprise move to Romania, according to reports, as his nomadic career takes another odd twist.
Lafferty has had stints in Switzerland, Italy, Turkey and Norway in addition to a host of British clubs and is close to a move to Sepsi [Prosport].
The Northern Irish striker’s most recent club was Reggina in Italy and the 33-year-old was linked with a return to Scotland last month with Hamilton and Dundee.
After returning to Ibrox in 2018 for a second spell at the club, Lafferty was let go 12 months later after a disappointing stint under Steven Gerrard.
Shortly after leaving Rangers second time around, Lafferty joined Norwegian club Sarspborg 08, helping them avoid Eliteserien relegation, before a brief stint at Sunderland in 2020.
A return to Italian football with Reggina followed and he looked to have some long-term security after signing a two-year deal with the Serie B side.
Eleven appearances later it was all over for him though and after a few months without a club, Lafferty looks set to make his comeback in the former Communist nation.
Sepsi are chasing a European spot for next season and sit nine points behind third-place Universitatea Craiova, with a game in hand – and hope Lafferty can help stamp their passport.
Rangers have already signed one midfielder heading into next season, with the Gers securing a pre-contract deal for a 21-year-old currently plying his trade in the Championship.
