Rangers-linked midfielder Haris Belkebla signs a new contract with Ligue 1 club Brest, confirming earlier reports he was set to commit his future to the French side.

The Algerian international was linked to Rangers by L’Equipe back in June as Rangers looked to strengthen their midfield.

However reports in mid-July [L’Equipe] claimed the player was set to snub interest from the likes of the Gers and Stade Brestois’ French rivals RC Lens to stay at Stade Francis-Le Blé.

The new deal will see Belkebla – who has one cap for the Algerian national side – commit himself to Brest until 2023.

The 26-year-old midfielder is one of a number of midfielders who’ve been linked to Rangers during the transfer window as the club looks to invest in the middle of the park.

Rangers are also said to have cooled interest in a summer move for Sheffield United midfielder John Lundstram, instead opting to consider a pre-contract move in January.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has been very open about the club’s plans to add a player to the “engine-room” this season.
