Liverpool set to sign teenager
RANGERS have agreeded a three-year deal for the sale of 18-year-old defender Danny Wilson.
The deal will see the Glasgow club net an initial �2million, rising to �5million with add-ons linked to games played.
Wilson had 12 months left on his current contract and turned down an offer to stay with the club that saw him progress through the youth system.
Ibrox chief executive Martin Bain said; “Danny was entering his final year of his contract with the club and indicated that he felt it was in his interests to move on”. And if the player had allowed his current deal to expire, Rangers would have only expected to receive �500,000 in compensation. “Given that and the value of the offer from Liverpool it was deemed appropriate to accept that offer given the player wanted to go.” Bain told to Rangers website.
The Anfield club are set to complete the signing today, after the teenager was pulled out of the Rangers squad heading for Australia on a pre-season tour, and expected to complete a medical today.
