Rangers have confirmed on their official website that they have completed the signing of Arsenal teenager Gedion Zelalem on loan until January.
Gers boss Mark Warburton had already brought in nine new signings, with Wes Foderingham, James Tavernier, Rob Kiernan, Danny Wilson, Dominic Ball, Andy Halliday, Jason Holt, Nathan Oduwa and Martyn Waghorn all arriving this summer.
Now though, Warburton has made another move in the transfer market, snapping up United Stated youth international Zelalem on loan until the January transfer window.
Zelalem, 18. is highly rated at Arsenal, but with little chance of breaking into the first team this season, manager Arsene Wenger clearly felt it would be better for the midfielder to go out on loan and play on a regular basis elsewhere this term.
A move to the Scottish Championship may surprise many, but Zelalem will be playing under Warburton, who has a track record of developing young players.
Both sets of fans have been reacting to the deal, with Arsenal supporters of the belief that Zelalem will be excellent in Scotland, and the move will help him toughen up, giving him a better chance of success at Arsenal in the future.
Meanwhile, Rangers fans were also delighted with the deal, believing that they have snapped up one of the world's brightest young prospects - and whilst it's only for a few months, they are certainly excited by his arrival at Ibrox.
Here are some of the reactions from Arsenal and Rangers fans after Zelalem completed his move to Glasgow earlier today...
Gedion Zelalem joins @RangersFC on a season long loan. One player I feel could really make it all the way to the top. Good luck lad!— Jay (@thegrumpygooner) August 24, 2015
Think Rangers is a good move for Zelalem. He still looks pretty lightweight, playing regularly in Scotland should help toughen him up a bit.— Dave Forey (@DaveForey) August 24, 2015
Some of the loan signings Warburton's brought in have been really impressive, but Zelalem could be his best, great potential— Leslie (@Leslie9614) August 24, 2015
Buzzing @RangersFC have signed Zelalem on Loan! Amazing talent who'll do great things for us!— Callum MacWilliam (@CMacWilliam) August 24, 2015
Very excited to see Zelalem at Rangers. Watched him play a bit in Arsenals pre-season a couple of years ago and he was excellent. #rfc— Stephen Halley (@Halley90) August 22, 2015
Delighted we've got Zelalem on loan, one of the most exciting young players on the planet & on the verge Arsenal's starting XI. Amazing!— Greg Martin (@gregmartin1982) August 22, 2015
Gedion Zelalem joined Rangers in Scotland today on a years loan That is a tough league, it will either kill him or make him a man— Bergkamp Wonderland (@TheAFCPodcast) August 22, 2015
Scottish second tier not the most glamorous destination for Zelalem, but Warburton is a plus. Opportunity to experience the physical demands— Sántï (@goonersanti) August 23, 2015
