The 22-year-old was playing for Charlton Athletic when the Scottish Premier League club hired him for the new season.
Former Charlton Athletic footballer, Joe Aribo, has undergone a medical to join Rangers as soon as possible.
And for Scottish Premier League boss Steven Gerrard, the 22-year-old is the perfect player for his midfield.
“There were a lot of clubs in for him around Europe and in the Premier League and Championship,” he told The Scottish Sun.
“I’m led to believe there was a lot of interest in him. So it may be seen as a statement of intent.”
He explained: “But, for me, it’s just another top player joining Rangers. I think this platform is perfect for him at the stage of his career he’s at.”
“He’s signing for a top club, it will be a big step up and I will be really interested in his development because I think there’s a lot more to come from him.”
“We are very confident we can turn him into a better player,” Gerrard added.
“He’s got a fantastic profile and you will see that for yourselves when you see him with your own eyes.”
“He’s very mobile and very dynamic. He can burst past a player and create and score goals,” he continued.
“There are still a lot of areas of his game where he can develop, but he gives us something we have not got in midfield. That’s the key.”
🔙 to work in the Algarve.
