In-demand Rangers teenager Josh McPake is set to sign a two-year contract extension and then join League One side Morecambe on a season-long loan, according to the Express & Star.
The 19-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Harrogate Town, scoring four times as he helped the Yorkshire club confirm their League Two survival.
It appears the Shrimps have won the race for the Gers’ wide player as the Express & Star has reported that he is expected to sign for the League One new boys on a season-long loan.
The report claims that the teenager, whose current deal at Ibrox is up next summer, will pen a two-year extension before making the move south of the border.
McPake will be Morecambe’s fifth signing of the summer as they prepare for life in the English third tier, with Stephen Robinson now at the helm following Derek Adams’ move to Bradford City.

This looks like a fantastic signing for Morecambe and should help fill the hole left by the departure of Carlos Mendes Gomes, who has joined Luton Town.
The 19-year-old looked really bright during his loan spell at Harrogate and the step up to League One seems the right move for his development.
It seems McPake won’t be leaving Ibrox permanently any time soon though, with an extension to his current deal expected before he goes out on loan.
