Rangers boss Mark Warburton has shed some light on the next player to arrive at Ibrox, revealing a loan deal is ‘close’ and that the player will belong to a Premier League club, via the club's official Twitter account.
Warburton didn’t go as far as to name the club in question but his insight is sure to have Gers fans excited about the prospects of further quality additions.
Promising Spurs youngsters Dominic Ball and Nathan Oduwa arrived last week on season-long loans and there are plenty of players available of that ilk to be brought in on temporary deals.
The benefits of a loan move North of the border are clear for clubs hoping to give their best young talents valuable big-game experience.
Playing in front of 50,000 of the most passionate fans in the country at Ibrox every other week will prove to be a real baptism of fire for any young player, and their parent clubs will find out a great deal about them by the end of their stint.
The pressure cooker of the Old Firm environment could make or break a player and Premier League clubs will struggle to find a better venue for the development of their young stars.
