Michael Beale is in for Harry Souttar according to two reliable and respected sources connected to all things related with Rangers transfer business.

The news came just hours after Stevie Clifford of Four Lads Had a Dream podcast claimed on The Rangers Review morning briefing that the 16-cap Australia international wasn’t a target.

Harry Souttar had been mentioned a few weeks ago but it now it appears as if Rangers are making their move, according to Heart and Hand and The 4th Official.

Harry Souttar to Rangers still on as reports stack up

David Edgar of Heart and Hand on the Daily Update on the 28th August was insistent that the younger of the Souttar brother’s hasn’t been ruled out, however, The 4th Official was more specific when they reported via Patreon:

“Leicester City want to move him on, and Rangers are definitely one of the frontrunners for his signature for this upcoming season.

“Also, if my sources are to be believed, Souttar is excited about the prospect of joining his brother at Rangers.”

Harry Souttar, was signed for £15m in January by Leicester City, according to BBC Sport after starring in the mid-season World Cup for his adopted country where he had the pleasure of squaring off against Lionel Messi.

Despite not being a regular starter since leaving Stoke City the 6ft 5inch stopper won’t be short of offers given the strengths that he would bring to a team.

He excels in one-to-one duels and, obviously, at winning aerial battles, he is also better on the ball than his numbers recently give him credit for.

With Leon King tipped to head out on loan, a high quality loan move makes a lot of sense, especially with Ianis Hagi off the wage books and Glen Kamara likely to join him soon too.

As a Rangers fan, if Michael Beale can get Harry Souttar in on loan, we would be in a good position to offer a permanent transfer next summer – if Leicester are willing to knock a few pounds off the price tag that is.
