The Rangers manager, Steven Gerrard, could sanction a long-term move for the youngster who came through the ranks at Ibrox.
The young Rangers striker, Andrew Dallas, has made a positive impression on fans of his prospective new club, after leaving Ibrox on trial.
Dallas scored at a prolific rate for Rangers' development sides last season and continued where he left off in a closed-doors friendly against Cambridge last week.
That prompted the U's boss, Colin Calderwood, to request a closer look at the Rangers academy product.
And after appearing in the friendly against Leicester City on Tuesday, Dallas is expected to remain at the Abbey Stadium for Ipswich Town's visit on Saturday.
Calderwood admitted afterwards that he is keen to secure a more fixed-term arrangement with Rangers.
And several of a U's appear to agree with their manager's assessment.
Mitov was outstanding tonight. Would of lost by a lot more if it wasn’t for him. Very happy with the first half performance, Wes looked insane in the second (apparently signing him Saturday vs Ipswich GET IN) and Dallas looked very positive too. Here’s to the season ⚽️ #CUFC— Megs (@megan_stigwood) July 23, 2019
Dallas, Carruthers and Wes would be amazing signings, flashes of what they could do tonight against a top side so hard to judge but didn’t really see many mistakes, I’d imagine if they all play Saturday we will see their real qualities, don’t think we should look at Ward tho!— Josh Cornwell (@JoshCornwell9) July 23, 2019
Dallas looks promising— Jackbeeton (@Jckbeeton02cufc) July 23, 2019
Difficult to tell against such strong opposition. Dallas made some good runs but didnt get enough service. Carruthers looks a good prospect forward thinking in looking up & passing. Ward looked out of sorts when he came on.— Matt Childerley (@mattchilli87) July 23, 2019
Dallas did ok considering we had hardly any attacks, carruthers looked a bit off the pace tbh, this next 7 days is crucial we get players in who can do a job at league 2— nathan stokes (@nathanstokes08) July 23, 2019
Looked OK last night. Given a pretty thankless task as a lone striker who became isolated for some of the time. That's not his game - but might be decent in a front two, playing off Ibehre for example.— Interested Observer (@InterestedObs78) July 24, 2019
That striker was dreadful.— Tom (@TomKeogh13) July 23, 2019
Got hardly any service Tom to be fair to him. Difficult to judge.— YABA (@YABAcufc) July 23, 2019
Speaking to Cambridgeshire Live, Calderwood said: "I must admit I quite like what I see in him.
"What a tough ask to be examined against this opposition tonight [Leicester].
"There were moments in his movement that I liked when the ball came back to us.
"It would be very positive if we could get a deal done with him."
Whether Dallas would leave Rangers on a permanent or temporary basis remains to be seen.
The 20-year-old appeared to have seen his Rangers prospects improve with the recent departures of Ryan Hardie and Kyle Lafferty.
What should Rangers do with Dallas?
