Osijek announce Mile Todorov could sign for them despite recent trial with Steven Gerrard's Rangers

General Views of Ibrox Stadium before the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and Hamilton Academical at Ibrox Stadium on August 6, 2016 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Rangers were said to be pondering a move for the player, who has trained with Steven Gerrard's Ibrox outfit.

Steven Gerrard, Manager of Rangers looks on prior to the Ladbrokes Premiership match between Livingston and Rangers at Tony Macaroni Arena on January 27, 2019 in Livingston, United Kingdom.

A player who reportedly trialled with Rangers this month could be joining another club instead.

The Mail claimed earlier this month that Mile Todorov was training with Rangers as Steven Gerrard's side 'pondered a move'.



But NK Osijek have announced that Todorov will join their party travelling to Hungary this week, and has the option to stay in the Croatian side's B team if he impresses on tour.

Osijek provided Rangers with two players, Borna Barisic and Eros Greza, in the summer transfer window.

And a move there may leave the door ajar for Rangers to pounce in future transfer windows.

Although as yet unverified, it has been claimed on Twitter that the Gers are involved in the deal that could potentially take Todorov to Osijek.

The 19-year-old, who currently plays for NK Novigrad, was part of the Macedonia Under-19s side that beat a strong-looking England side, containing Jadon Sancho and Phil Foden, in 2018.
