Rangers star Juninho Bacuna appears to be moving on from Ibrox after only a matter of months in Glasgow with the midfielder spotted at Birmingham City.
The Dutch-born Curacao midfielder joined the Gers at the end of the summer transfer window whilst the club was under the management of Steven Gerrard but has failed to make his mark at Ibrox.
According to the likes of the Daily Record, a move to Birmingham City now awaits the midfielder with Juninho Bacuna returning to the Championship after joining the Gers from Huddersfield.
Whilst the details of the deal still need to be thrashed out – with the Record report claiming Birmingham can’t cover Juninho Bacuna’s Rangers wages – a deal is said to be “likely”.
Juninho Bacuna was also seemingly pictured at Birmingham City as reports surrounding the midfielder continued to develop.
Rangers midfielder Juninho Bacuna prepares for Birmingham City switch
This comes after Juninho Bacuna played the full 90 minutes and assisted two goals in the 4-0 Scottish Cup win over Stirling Albion.
However, this was a fleeting showing for a frustrating performer who never really got into the groove at Rangers and fans are not so perturbed to see the ex-FC Groningen star leave, especially if it frees up wages for January transfers into the club.
Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst was speaking about transfers after the club’s 1-0 win over Livingston – for which Bacuna was not included in the squad – and claimed the Gers are not “ready yet” with any transfer deals.
“We’re still busy, it’s only a couple of days so we’ll see what happens in the next days,” said van Bronckhorst [Sky Sports].
“I don’t think we’re ready yet in the market.”
In total, Bacuna played in 12 matches for Rangers, scoring once in the 4-2 home win over Ross County.
If Juninho Bacuna does move to Birmingham City, he will follow fellow first-teamer Nathan Patterson south, the Scotland international joining Everton in a deal that could reach £16m.
The Juninho Bacuna deal itself raised some eyebrows as the Huddersfield chief executive revealed some creative stipulations to the transfer.
