Rangers have received a boost in their pursuit of Danilho Doekhi as PSV are reportedly looking to sign a player from abroad on a loan deal until the end of the season according to Dutch outlet ED.

This would rule out a move for Doekhi as he currently plays in the Eredivisie for Vitesse and wouldn’t be considered for a loan deal to divisional rivals.

The Dutch giants are currently in a title race with rivals Ajax and are looking to bolster their squad for the second half of the season.

This means Rangers are in pole position to secure the 23-year-olds signature, with the players current contract expiring at the end of the season, a pre contract agreement could be sorted this month.

The Ibrox side are looking to add more defenders to boost the backline, with a deal to sign John Souttar already agreed, Doekhi could be next.

There was also interest from Serie A, with Napoli [ScottishSun] and Atalanta [MetropolitanMagazine] linked with the Dutchman.

Napoli recently signed Man Utd defender Axel Tuanzebe on loan until the end of the season, which has further boosted the Gers hopes of securing a deal for Doekhi.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst has already made two signings so far during the January transfer window as he looks to further bolster his squad as the side look to achieve success on three fronts.

Signing the Vitesse captain would signal further intent that van Bronckhorst means business. Although a move during this window could be ruled out as the Dutch side are demanding a fee of £2m to secure the player now instead of the summer.

Even though the side have received a record fee from Everton for Nathan Patterson, this sort of money could be spent elsewhere.

Meanwhile, Rangers have been delivered a Euro warning as Borussia Dortmund thrashed Freiburg 5-1 in the Bundesliga.
