Rangers right-back Mateusz Zukowski is set to return home to Poland and Lech Poznan as the Gers reportedly offer young full-back Adam Devine a new deal.

Zukowski, 20, joined Rangers in January from Ekstraklasa side Lechia Gdansk in a reported £500k deal [Scottish Sun] after the club sold Nathan Patterson to Everton in a then record-breaking transfer deal.

However, the Polish U21 international right-back has found chances at a premium in Scotland and Mateusz Zukowski has made only one appearance for the club’s top team.

This came in the 3-0 Scottish Cup win over Annan Athletic at Galabank last season.

Now, according to reports in Poland, the right-back is on the verge of joining Lech Poznan as he looks to return to his home country after six months in Scotland.

Mateusz Zukowski “close” to Rangers exit

Interia are reporting that Mateusz Zukowski is set to join Lech Poznan on a season-long loan deal with an option-to-buy.

Whilst the report does not speculate on the potential fee involved in any future transfer, Zukowski is contracted to Rangers until 2025 and this may be a positive solution for all parties.

So far this season Zukowski has been relegated to B Team matches in the Challenge Cup and a transfer to Lech Poznan may help the right-back get his career back on track.

It is always going to be difficult to dislodge Rangers captain James Tavernier from the right-back berth but beyond this manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst has appeared to prefer Academy right-back Adam Devine when rotating the squad.

In the latter moments of the Premiership campaign, Devine earned minutes coming off the bench against Dundee United and playing the full 90 against Hearts.

Highly-regarded by the club’s coaching department, there are reports that Adam Devine is set to be tied down on a new deal with the 19-year-old clearly fancied in front of Mateusz Zukowski.

Sometimes transfers don’t work out for whatever reason and with a deal to take the Polish right-back to Lech Poznan apparently close, let’s hope for everyone involved it proves to be a positive move.
