Bournemouth midfielder Nnamdi Ofoborh has signed a pre-contract agreement with Glasgow Rangers ahead of making the move to Scotland next summer, with the news being confirmed today on the club’s official website.
The youngster becomes the second player in a matter of weeks to opt for Ibrox over staying long-term at the Vitality Stadium, with defender Jack Simpson having also agreed an arrangement that will see him move north of the border come the end of the current season.
A 21-year-old former Millwall man, Ofoborh has also completed a loan move to the Bournemouth’s fellow Championship side Wycombe Wanderers, where he will once again link up with Gareth Ainsworth following a productive spell with the Chairboys last term.

After coming through the ranks with the Cherries, the youngster has since made five first team appearances and was viewed as a good prospect for the future by many on the South Coast.
7 of these 18 facts about Bournemouth boss Jason Tindall are fake – Can you identify which ones aren’t true?
The Southwark-born player has also been capped for Nigeria’s under-20s.
This will come as another small blow to Bournemouth and Jason Tindall as they are once again losing a player with undoubted potential for absolutely nothing.
However there is little a club can do if a player does not to wish to stay put and as a result it is best for all parties that the midfielder moves on come the end of the campaign.
His loan move to Wycombe will allow him to get the regular football he craves, with the Cherries having brought in extra blood in midfield in the shape of Jack Wilshere and Ben Pearson.
Given that Ofoborh only made a handful of first team appearances for the club, many will be wondering what might have been.
