One-time reported Rangers target Devante Cole has joined Scottish Premiership rivals Motherwell on-loan from Wigan.
The striker becomes the Steelmen’s seventh signing of the summer and Rangers fans might remember him being linked to Ibrox.
During his time at Fleetwood, Rangers were reportedly said to be interested in signing Devante Cole on a pre-contract in 2018.

Perhaps this season he can show why Rangers were reportedly showing an interest in signing him at one-time last year.
But Cole opted to sign for English outfit Wigan in the January 2018 window instead.
The former Fleetwood striker was linked to Ibrox as Rangers looked to strengthen in January 2018.
The son of former Manchester United and England striker Andy Cole, Devante joins Fir Park for an initial six-month period.
Now 24, a move to Scotland could help reignite his fortunes after a disappointing spell with the Latics.
Interestingly, Cole is also a product of the Manchester City youth academy, whilst his father is a legend of Manchester United.
