Report: Warburton close to making another Rangers signing, talks held with Reece Wabara

Rangers FC

Rangers are reportedly close to signing defender Reece Wabara.

According to The Herald, Rangers are poised to announce the signing of former Manchester City defender Reece Wabara in the coming days.

New manager Mark Warburton has already snapped up two centre backs in Danny Wilson and Rob Kiernan, but it's now right back that Warburton is attempting to strengthen.

Having allowed Richard Foster and Sebastien Faure to leave on free transfers this summer, Warburton certianly needs to bring at least one right back this summer.

Now, according to The Herald, former Manchester City right back Wabara has not only travelled up to Glasgow to begin training with Rangers, but has also held talks with the club over a permanent deal.

The 23-year-old is a free agent having left Doncaster Rovers, and is now expected to become Rangers' latest summer signing this week.

Exciting addition

Wabara left Doncaster at the end of his contract this summer, and it was anticipated that he would be pursuing something higher than League One football as a result.

It's therefore something of a coup for Rangers if they do manage to land Wabara this week, as he looks set to make the move to the Scottish Championship rather than the English Championship.

A pacey right back who loves to get forward, Wabara would be a great addition for Rangers, and a sign of the calibre of players Warburton is able to attract.
