Rangers have reached a pre-contract agreement with AFC Bournemouth defender Jack Simpson, the club have confirmed.
Simpson came through the ranks at Bournemouth has made eight appearances for the Cherries in the Championship this season.
The 24-year-old has made a total of 35 appearances for the club, and is yet to experience a move away from the South Coast.
Stanislas? Brooks? – Can you name which AFC Bournemouth player scored each these 15 goals this season?
But with his contract set to expire at the end of this season, Bournemouth have confirmed that Simpson will be leaving in the summer.
SPFL leaders Rangers have reached an agreement to sign Simpson on a pre-contract basis, meaning that he will move north of the border on the first day of July.
Cross-border rules mean that Rangers could open talks with Simpson, who has less than six months to run on his contract at the Vitality Stadium.
Simpson will spend the remainder of the season at Bournemouth, hoping to play a part in helping Jason Tindall’s side push for promotion and return to the Premier League.
This has seemingly been in the pipeline for a while now and it doesn’t surprise me to see that Simpson is moving to Rangers.
They are a massive club and a massive pull for someone of his age, and I think their defence needs strengthening despite a strong season so far.
Simpson hasn’t played regularly in recent years, and this could be a great chance for him to move to Ibrox and get a load of games under his belt.
